Seventeen sulfurous springs located along the Abu-Jir Fault Zone were investigated during 2011 in terms of hydrogeochemistry. Physico-chemical parameters including color, taste, odor, hydrogen number (pH), total dissolved solid (TDS), electrical conductivity (EC), temperature (T), total suspended solid (TSS), major cations (Ca2+, Mg2+, Na+, K+), major anions (SO42-, Cl-, HCO3-, CO32-), secondary ions (NO3- ,PO43-), H2S, Trace elements (Pb, Cd, Ni, Co, Zn, Fe, Mn, Cu, Cr, Hg, As, Mo, Se, Ag, Br, F, Li, Sr, Ba, B, Be, and Th) are measured. Sediment samples that have been collected from the spring bottom are analyzed for SiO2, Al2O3, Fe2O3, CaO, MgO, Na2O, K2O, TiO2, MnO, P2O5, BaO, SrO and L.O.I). Dissolved oxygen (DO), biological oxygen demand (BOD) is also determined along with the microbiological analyses for bacteria and algae. The sulfurous springs are almost valid for the balneology as therapeutic uses according to the global guidelines of the European Union, 2009 and USA and Iceland spas, Dead Sea and the Hungarian sediments.**
