HYDROGEOLOGICAL INFLUENCE OF THE RAUTOVAC STREAM BASIN UPON THE QUALITY OF THE NIŠKA BANJA THERMAL WATERS
Construction Engineering School "Neimar", Niš
The object of study is
the hydrogeological influence of the Rautovac stream basin upon the
quality of the Niška Banja thermal waters, namely, of Glavno vrelo and
Suva banja. The influences of the atmospheric precipitation upon the
temperature regime change of the thermal springs in the period from 1931
to 1999 are analyzed. The water temperature measurements started in 1931
and they have been kept for no less than seven decades with two
Ecological and hydro-engineering protection actions of the basin are suggested. The importance of the organized follow-up of ali the relevant parameters of the thermal springs' water quality is stressed for the sake of protecting the healing water resources of Niška Banja and developing the medical center.
The research was done at the Faculty of Safety at Work within the Master's studies dealing with the Ecological Engineering for Water and Soil Protection.
Key words: Rautovac stream basin, hydrogeological influence, quality of the thermal waters, Niška Banja
