Part of the Springer Water book series (SPWA)


Although it is a renewable source, which has our planet, still the same amount will be for the people of the rarer and undoubtedly still more expensive. For two decades, most of the world’s population will live in countries where water supplies are very small. From a global perspective are in the region of South Moravia supplies of good quality water for supply to residents is sufficient. However, it is necessary, these sources maintain, where appropriate, restore, monitor their quality and quantity and ensure their adequate protection from spoilage. The use of surface water and groundwater for drinking purposes, its modification and distribution are very essential for the development of the entire region, especially in the parts where there persists an individual supply.
