According to the Environment Protection Act (2), the Environmental Agency of the Republic of Slovenia is responsible for the water quality monitoring and evaluation of water quality status in Slovenia. Monitoring programmes (3) are drawn up in accordance with regulations that summarise the provisions of European directives, and in accordance with the status assessment and pressure analysis of each individual water body. They include quality monitoring of rivers, lakes, sea, groundwater, and water in protected areas.
With Slovenia’s association with the European Union, the Water Framework Directive (1) has become the binding and key document in the field of water management and has also influenced changes in the monitoring of lake quality.
