The objective of this study is to assess the quality of groundwater in the agricultural zone of Sidi Abdelrrazak (province of Khemisset), as well as the monitoring and analysis of some metallic trace elements. This study allowed us to identify the outline of the interaction between agriculture and water quality in the region where the ecotoxicological risks represented by the various uses are present. The analysis of metallic trace elements in the groundwater showed a lack of groundwater contamination by these elements, with the exception of Copper at a well which indicates the presence of a possible impact of agriculture on quality of these waters. However, the measured value for Fluor in this area suggested a possible local contamination of the deep layers of the region and opens the way for future investigations.
