WATER QUALITY OF THE ȚIGANILOR RIVER CATCHMENT IN CLUJ NAPOCA
Melinda VIGH, Csaba HORVÁTH, Gavril PANDI
ABSTRACT. – The Țiganilor River catchment covers both built areas and the green/natural areas of the Botanical Garden. As we will see, the location influences differentially the quantitative and qualitative hydric processes of the stream. Situated in a city with a particularly dynamic development, where the emphasis is on preserving a healthy natural and anthropic environment, this obliges the monitoring and evaluation of the aquatic bodies’ qualitative parameters. We assessed this through two measurement campaigns, when parameters were determined in situ and in the laboratory. The physico-chemical parameters evaluation allowed the water classification in different quality classes. At the same time, there were sections where the water quality did not comply with the national regulations, and so they require further monitoring. Such situations where identified regarding the concentration of hydrogen ions, chlorine, nitrates, sulfates, sodium, magnesium and calcium.
