Country Profile: Water Bodies and Resources

The quantity and quality of different groups of surface and ground waters in the Slovak territory are monitored by a partial monitoring system. Of the entire 8,210 km of economically important rivers, 3,723.3 km are monitored. The quality of ground waters has been monitored in Slovakia since 1982 in 26 key water management areas by the Slovak Institute of Hydro-Meteorology. The monitoring network of ground water consists of a total of 344 monitoring units. The most significant of these areas is part of the 10 protection areas of natural water accumulation. In addition, some 24 protection zones of natural healing resources and natural spring water resources have been registered. The most extensive monitoring network has been created in the Žitný ostrov area, which is the largest drinking water source in Central Europe.
