ABSTRACT

The river monitoring activity from the territory of the Banat hydrographic space which is situated in south-western part of Romania started in the 19th century, when the achievement of drainage works were started, of great amplitude, in the subsidence area of the Western Field, where there several swamps and frequent floods took place, and when several hydrotechnical works were performed, based on studies and projects, for which several observations and hydrological measurement where necessary. The occurrence of these events quickened the establishment of the first hydrometrical stations from Romania, in its western part, meaning Banat. Thus, the first hydrometric stations established within Banat region have at the moment a significant historical value, because they are among the oldest hydrometrical stations from Romania. The hydrometric network of the Banat region sums almost 80 hydrometric stations, 2 evaporimetric stations on the lake, 122 automated river and drilling stations, 22 measuring sections for utility flows, 65 satellite sections, 84 hydrological and hydrogeological springs şi 598 hydrogeological drillings which are distributed in all the relief steps and are located on the main rivers and their tributaries and the density of the hydrometrical station network is good.
