ABSTRACT

The authors present the update stage of Braila Plain water resouces. Within the surface
waters, the Buzau, Siret, Calmatui rivers as well as the Danube are included, as they are
water suppliers for Braila Plain, in the absence of other important water resources. The
lakes are few in number, with a low volume of water and a high chemism. The smalldepth
underground waters exist as a continuously ground water layer and the high-depth
ones are found especially in the Fratesti layers, but these have a high mineralization.
Mention should be made that Braila Plain own water resources are poor (only lakes and
underground waters) and they naturally have an increased mineralization degree due to
both the natural and the anthropic factors.

Keywords: limited water resources, high chemism, self-purging, pollution sources, water resources exploitation
