Groundwater is an important natural resource for providing drinking water to the population. The main quantities of water are in gravel plains, as well as in Ljubljansko polje, which attracts various economic activities. Integral burdening is a result of various pressures on the environment within different regions. The knowledge of the characteristics and the dispersion of urbanisation, industry and agriculture, taking into account various self-cleaning abilities of the environment, is needed for integrated measures for preserving groundwater quality.
