The Bouregreg River is located on the Moroccan Atlantic coast between Rabat and Sale. It length is 24000 meteras well the width average is 150 meter. This river receives wastewater discharges, solid and atmospheric fallen of many development works as well as industrial and agricultural activities, which present a threat to this ecosystem. The primary aim of this study, therefore, was to follow the conductivity variation of Bouregreg river natural waters according to the concentration of some anions (chlorides (Cl-), sulfates (SO4 2-), bicarbonates (HCO3 -) and nitrate (NO3 -)) to determine the ions that have an effect on the conductivity. The second objective is to apply the method of experimental designs and isoresponsescurves for modeling and optimization of this parameter as a function of analyzed anions in Bouregreg natural waters.
