The mountainous areas of Algeria are subject to severe earthquakes. During the rainy season the country can also experience mudslides and floods.
Algeria Environmental Issues:
Environmental issues for Algeria include inadequate supplies of potable water, and pollution of rivers and coastal waters, due to dumping of raw sewage, petroleum refining waste and other industrial runoff. The Mediterranean Sea, on Algeria's northern border, is especially becoming polluted from oil wastes, fertilizer runoff, and soil erosion.
