This study evaluated the suitability of an adsorption technique in drainage water treatment for irrigation purposes. The water samples for this study were sourced from different spots of Al-MASAB AL A’AM river. Three different locations (Latifia, Yusufiyah, and Swerah area) were considered in this study. Several studies have reported the use of activated carbon and ion exchangers for water treatment. In this work, a cheap alternative bio-filtration media (activated carbon derived from Apricot stones (ASAC)) was used. Several parameters are required in this technique for various estimations; such parameters include the chemical and physical properties of the water samples (like the pH, ionic concentration, electrical conductivity (EC), and total dissolved solids (TDS). The Freundlich equations was also applied to study the chemical adsorption process using ASAC. Also calculated were the adsorption constant (k) and the number of adsorbents (n). From the results of this study, the applied process was suitable for the removal of Ca+2, Mg+2 and CO3-2 ions from the sampled water.
