In the present study, Al-Hussainiya River within Karbala City was monitored for a variety of chemical and physical parameters to determine water quality during 2016. Water quality indices (WQIs) were calculated for protection of aquatic life, using the model of CCME WQI (Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment Water Quality Index). Ten parameters were selected namely: Lead, Cadmium, Iron, Turbidity, pH value, Dissolved Oxygen, Water Temperature, Nitrate, Chloride and Total Dissolved Solids (TDS). The results revealed that station 1 which was located in upstream of River was more polluted than the other stations. The WQI ranking was poor in all stations. The highest deviation occurred in lead, Cadmium, TDS, and Turbidity, this parameters made a big contribution in decreasing the value of WQI.

Keywords: Water quality index, Aquatic life, Al-Hussainiya Rive
