This research was conducted in Gas Compressor Station in Ahvaz region-2 (Asmari) Karoon Company, and oil, water and soil basins were sampled and samples were transferred to the laboratory to analyze soil and water quality parameters. Mixing basins were analyzed in terms of EC, TDS, TSS, and pH and then were assessed in several different level and dilution based on the level of water quality. Analysis performed on basin water included measuring total suspended solid salts, total soluble salts, electrical conductivity and soil reaction. The results showed that, among mixing samples, the one tested by treatment of 75% irrigation water and 25% separated water was more appropriate for irrigating green space than the other samples. In this treatment, Asmari Gas Compressor Station sample had EC=3320 µS/cm, TSS=0. mg/lit and TDS= 994 mg/lit, the results showed that the use of unconventional water for environmental purposes required specific management, which in addition to desirable utilization did not have environmental and health hazards for the soil, plant, and surface and underground water resources.
