Impact of power plants outlet on Nile River Water Quality Case study: El-Kurimat Power Plant, Egypt

Abstract: The aim of this research is to study the impact of El-Kurimat power plant outlet on River Nile water quality through measuring physicochemical, chemical and microbiological contaminants of the inlet and outlet samples of El-Kurimat power plant. Water Quality Index (WQI) of the inlet and outlet samples were investigated by using Egyptian Water Quality Index (EWQI) based on Egyptian guidelines of law 48/1982 amended in 2013, article 49. WQI results of the average inlet and outlet samples showed that the water quality is marginal with values 53% and 48%, respectively (i.e. water quality is frequently threatened or impaired; conditions often depart from natural or desirable levels).
