The Skhira coastal aquifer is located in east central Tunisia. It is already affected by the intrusion of saline water phenomena. This study evaluated the suitability of aquifer groundwater various using data on chemical and physical data from 31 wells for the decade from 2000-10. Salinity increases in the direction of flow and exceeds 10 g/L in the northeast region. Groundwater composition is controlled primarily by the concentrations of sodium, chlorides and sulphates. The majority of the groundwater samples are not potable.
