Abstract

Nowadays, the use and increase of water demand is one of the most important and sensitive issues and is given great attention worldwide. Particularly, with the rise of population number and increasing the demand on it. The goal of this study is to identify the increase in water demand in Shaqlawa district as a result of the district's population growth, both urban and rural, over the 12 years between 2009 and 2020, as well as the total per capita water demand during the same period. The methods used in this study are the comparative method, the analytical method, and the Pearson Correlation Coefficient. We also received data on the district's population from 2009 to 2020, as well as their water needs according to the Iraqi standard, which was established by the Iraqi Ministry of Planning in (1986) for Iraqi provinces. We came to the following conclusions at the end of the study: the district's population has increased by 40,162 people in the last 12 years, increasing the demand for water by 12,783,670 liters per day. In terms of water resources, it is primarily dependent on groundwater. There is a significant positive correlation (R=10.001>P) in the positive direction between population growth and water use.
