ABSTRACT. Characteristics and use of mineral waters and therapeutic mud from Grid village area (Braşov County). This paper present some physicochemical characteristics of mineral waters and therapeutic mud in the Grid Village area, as well as aspects regarding their use. The study is based on the data collected from relevant bibliographic sources and field investigations and measurements carried out between 2012 - 2016. Chemically, the mineral waters from Grid Village area are chlorosodic (salinity 50 g/l), bicarbonated, and calcium-rich. The mineral salt deposit build-up on the soil stratum led to the formation of therapeutic mud, which has a compact granular structure with evenly distributed chemical elements (except for sodium and chlorine) and high concentrations in oxygen and silicon. At present, the use of mineral waters and therapeutic mud from Grid village area is underdeveloped and strictly local.

Keywords: mineral waters, physico-chemical characteristics, therapeutic mud, Grid Village.
