ABSTRACT

In recent years, the international community has witnessed incidence of climate
variability and human activities. In this study, will be treated water resources and
environmental protection is the catchments area of Lake Badovc. The catchments area
of the Lake Badovc has a size of 109 km² and the active storage volume of the lake is
assessed to 26.4 Mill.m3. Around 28% of the total population of Municipality of
Prishtina supply with drinking water from Lake Badovc.

The knowledge of flows reaching the Lake Badovc is important for developing a water
resources plan. Since no useful hydrological data was available for the study it was
decided to obtain this information by means of hydrological modeling based on a
rainfall-runoff computation. The hydrologic modeling system used, is HEC-HMS
developed by the Hydrologic Engineering Centre of the US Corps of Engineers. The
model is designed to simulate the rainfall-runoff processes of catchments areas and is
applicable to a wide range of geographic areas.

Water samples are taken from two streams reach Lake Badovc and from the lake in
three different depths (5m, 10m and 15m) at different locations. Concerning the
environment impact more than 140 interviews were conducted and questionnaires filled
in the period October-November for Mramor area, concentrating on the most important
issues: building, water supply, wastewater disposal and west disposal.
