ABSTRACT

In the present study I am analysing the infringement of water polluting together with
other infringements of the public health as described in the Romanian Criminal Law in
art 311. The Romanian Criminal Law stipulates that infringement of water sources and
networks by any means, if harmful for people, animals or plants, is punished with prison
from 6 months to 4 years or fine. The water sources that the law refers to are: springs,
fountains, lakes and bowls. The water networks refer to pipes, filters, canals, cradles etc.
The analysis of the infringement of water polluting is done according to the well-known
doctrine structure and comprises: the infringement object and subject, the content of the
infringement: the objective side of the material element, the immediate consequence and
cause relation; the subjective side of the infringement as well as their means of
realisation and the sanctions applicable.

Keywords: infringement, sanction, Romanian Criminal Code, health
