Physical and chemical properties for water in Wadi Almawaheb and Qa' Asawad were studied for the purpose of classification of this water for irrigation use, where it was adopted on cations ions (Calcium (Ca 2+ ), Magnesium (Mg 2+ ), sodium (Na + ), Potassium (K + ), anions ions (bicarbonate (HCO3 -), Chloride (Cl -), Sulfate (SO4 2-), pH value, Electrical Conductivity (EC),and Sodium Adsorption Ratio (SAR), the results showed that, 50% water samples fall within the water class (C3-S1) and 50%
