This study was conducted to find out the concentration of some properties (pH , TDS, EC & Turbidity) in well water, river water, and tap water along the Tigris River (Mosul, Salah al-Din, Baghdad, Wasit, and Maysan).

The results showed that the differences between water types were significant (P < 0.05) for all groups. And the differences between the governorates, that there is a significant increase in the pH of tap water (P < 0.05) in Wasit Governorate (7.64). While the highest rate of acidity was recorded in the river water in Missan and Wasit. While well water was significantly higher (P < 0.05) in Baghdad governorate. The results of total dissolved solids for drinking water were significantly higher (P < 0.05) in Missan and Mosul governorates. While the highest concentration was recorded in the river water of Baghdad and Mosul governorates. Well water recorded the highest concentration in Missan Governorate compared to its concentration in other governorates, in addition to that the electrical conductivity was significantly higher (P < 0.05) in well water compared to other types of water in different governorates. Turbidity levels were significantly higher (P < 0.05) in the water of Mosul wells compared to other water sources in all different governorates.
