WATER RESOURCES MANAGEMENT IN TUZLA CANTON - BOSNIA AND HERZEGOVINA
ABSTRACT. In this paper, the main sources of available drinking water and the spatial distribution of medicinal waters in the Tuzla Canton are analyzed. The focus of the paper is on the use of available drinking water and the exploitation of medicinal waters in this area. The paper describes the available quantities of drinking water, water needs and potential available quantities in the municipalities of Tuzla Canton. The conducted research indicates a lack of drinking water in this area. In order to improve the water supply of the population with drinking water in this area, it was pointed out that longterm systemic solution to the problem of drinking water shortage must be considered. Exploitation and use of medicinal water for tourist and medical purposes is done on a smaller scale. For the adequate application of medicinal waters in the work, it was also pointed out that it is necessary to improve the material basis, which primarily refers to the accommodation facilities and medical equipment in spas. The paper presents theoretical and practical research of spatial distribution of water resources and their use. The analysis of water resources presents their economic value and proposes guidelines for further use and protection.
