The goal behind this work is defined as the study of the quality of water from karst springs near quarries exploiting limestone rock in order to assess its adequacy with domestic uses. At that end, a study at the mountain level was carried out. This mountain is in the Haouz area, in Tetouan, which is located north of Morocco and shelters active quarries. This research is based on the assessment of the physico-chemical parameters of the spring water used by local residents and located near this industry. The water quality evaluation was carried out by comparing the recorded values, according to Moroccan Standards related to the quality of water for human use. The review of some parameter’s indicative of water pollution (T °, pH, electrical conductivity, dissolved oxygen, turbidity, total dissolved solids and the alkalimetric total title) revealed that the quality of the studied spring water is good and does not present any health risk to the users of this water during the winter season.
