In Risk management of water supply and sanitation systems impaired by operational failures, natural disasters and war conflicts: Dordrecht: Springer Science-Business Media, 2009. pp. 233–240. , Palackého 12, 612 00 Brno, Czech Republic Abstract. The paper provides two examples of extension and reconstruction of group water supply network in The Czech Republic. Both projects represent solution to problems with provision of potable water in adequate quantity and quality.
Raising the subsoil water level and increase in the content of NH4+, NO2–, NO3– in water allows us to suppose that the main reason of such phenomenon is long periodical volumetric escape of waste waters from outdated and considerably damaged sewage system of centralized Chernivtsi drainage system. 1. ASSESSMENT OF CHEMICAL ELEMENTS CONTENTS IN THE WATER OF CHERNIVTSI CENTRALISED WATER SUPPLY SYSTEM Over the many years of municipal water services company monitoring, there were cases of exceeding the content of Pb, Mn and Fe.
Assessment of relations between potential available groundwater quantity and used groundwater quantity is carried out through the annual water management balance developed by SHMI. Basic evaluation unit of groundwater balance is a hydrogeological region with its subsequent classification into sub-regions. According to valid hydrogeological regionalization (1995) the territory of Slovakia was divided into 141 hydrogeological regions (Ministry of Environment of the Slovak Republic 2007, 2008). The total available groundwater amount represents the sum of available resources approved by the Committee for Available Groundwater Quantity Classification and supplies not approved by the Committee which are determined following the volumes documented from hydro-geological observations and surveys.
