Abstract


Recent decades beside of rash growth of population are also accompanied by an increase in demand for water. If we add to this industrialization, urbanization, and technological development, the impact is increased, causing water deficit and ground water contamination. Groundwater research and regular monitoring of drinking water in our country increase the need for new water resources and to study the possibilities of using this water for the needs of population's, but additionally it‟s necessary to increase as well the awareness of the importance for protecting these resources from the impacts of different factors. The purpose of this paper is to provide quantitative and physical-chemical data to determine the quality of groundwater and use it as drinking water in Istog region because of: high density of these wells in this area, the scope for the agricultural field, water source potential, and non-proper utilization of ground water. Referent points in the Istog region, an area where research of resources is done, are evidence of the high quality of ground water. Measurements made at 24 points give different
results.

Keywords: groundwater, water quality, monitoring.
