Key message

On average there are sufficient quantities of water in Slovenia and most of it is in good ecological state. There is a noticeable impact of agriculture on water quality, especially in eastern parts of the country, which are dryer. There is also a concern about the decreasing of groundwater level in certain areas.

Ecological quality of rivers

The first assessment of the ecological quality of rivers (Figure 1) in compliance with the Water Directive was carried out as part of drawing up the Water Management Plan (WMP). To begin with the assessment covered only bodies of water that had not been extensively changed through human encroachment.

The majority are in good ecological condition; more data is given in chapter d) - What is the 2020 outlook?
