Background groundwater quality studies in the cities of Baku and Sumgayit reveal brackish and saline conditions. 3 gil (mainly a bicarbonate-chloride, sulphate and chloride-sulphate composition). 9 gil (mainly chloride-sulphate and chloride-sulphate-sodium composition). In the city of Gyandja the groundwaters have always been a source of water supply. The groundwaters are fresh with bicarbonate-calcium-sodium mineralisation up to about 1 gil. Based on the water quality studies, it was determined that any changes were due to influence of technogenic factors.
