Abstract

Water reservoirs play a significant role in human environment and economy. However, several factors and substances of anthropogenic origin that condition their functioning affect the pace of change occurring therein. Water protection and adequate water resource management are among the fundamental responsibilities of each state. Consequently, plans for water and intake quality monitoring are developed, and a register of protected sources of pollution emissions is kept. One of the objectives of the state's environmental policy is to undertake actions aimed at restoration of utility value to particular water ecosystems, i.e., recultivation. The said actions must be based upon very thorough catchment inventories. Basing on the detailed information collected, it is possible to develop programs that enable the effective restoration of lake functionality.
