ABSTRACT
Analyses of physico – chemical parameters of water are very important for human
health. Because of increasing human population, industrialization and uses biggest
quantity of fertilizers water is permanently polluted with different contaminants. Is very
important to found new water resources or to use carefully water, even the destination is for drinking or for tourism and recreation. The paper intends to analyze some physicchemical parameters of three types of water. The samples were collected from Danube River, a natural spring and Brates Lake. It was choose those types of water for analyses because Danube River is a most important water source for drinking water in Galati city, water from a natural spring is used by many peoples for drinking and Brates Lake is an area for fishing, swimming, tourism and recreation. In order to that it is very important to tests water from these sources. It was evaluate physic - chemical parameters such as: pH, conductivity, content of anions (Cl-,NO, SO), CCO (oxygenchemical consumption) and dissolved oxygen. The water quality evaluation was related to water quality parameters for drinking water established by the Romanian legislation the law 458/2002 according with European environmental legislation (Drinking water Directive 98/83/CE). The results showed that the tested waters have, with some exceptions, the physico-chemical parameters in agreement with the standard for drinking water according by the Romanian legislation.
