Samples were collected during October 2006 to May 2007 (25 - 30 °C). Comparing the results with drinking water quality standards issued by World Health Organization (WHO), it is found that some of the water samples are not potable. Hydrochemical facies using a Piper diagram indicate that in most parts of the city, the chemical character of water is dominated by NaCl. All samples showed sulfate and sodium ion higher and K<sup>+</sup> and F<sup>- </sup>content lower than the permissible limit. A strongly positive correlation is observed between TDS and EC (R = 0.995) and Ca<sup>2+</sup> and TH (R = 0.948). The results showed that regression relations have the same correlation coefficients: (I) pH -TH, EC -TH (R = 0.520), (II) NO<sub>3</sub><sup>-</sup> -pH, TH-pH (R = 0.520), (III) Ca<sup>2+</sup>-SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup>, TH-SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup>, Cl<sup>-</sup> -SO<sub>4</sub><sup>2-</sup> (R = 0.630). The results revealed that systematic calculations of correlation coefficients between water parameters and regression analysis provide a useful means for rapid monitoring of water quality.}, number={3}, journal={Walailak Journal of Science and Technology (WJST)}, author={HEYDARI, Mohammad Mehdi and ABBASI, Ali and ROHANI, Seyed Mohammad and HOSSEINI, Seyed Mohammad Ali}, year={2013}, month={Mar.}, pages={315–324} }
