Slovakia is a country rich in natural mineral water resources. They are used for balneology purposes and as a natural mineral water. There is a large amount of resources in Slovakia that appear to be potential for further use, but for various reasons they are not. This is a big disadvantage for the country. The aim of this work is a proposal on how to use the local spring in Išľa, north eastern Slovakia, and change this area into attractive spa for domestic or foreign tourists. In the past, mineral springs in the spa Išľa were exploited quite intensively in the region. The spa capacity ceased to be in the 70-ties of 20th century. It was mainly due to undue interference with the rock environment. As a result of drainage activities in the area were springs in Išľa deteriorated by the change of hydrogeological conditions. Over time, however, it leads to the destruction of completed drainage, resulting in a gradual recovery of hydrogeological conditions. Appropriate and mainly targeted approach, respecting the realities of the site, is possible the reconstruction of the sources and the surrounding area to achieve a substantial increase in the quality of water chemistry in the spring to the original condition. This work analyses the current condition of water management, as a collection of groundwater by horizontal or vertical ways. It analyses the current state of mineral water, discusses their classification, occurrence and its usage. It contains a proposal for detention facilities and its usage for healing. There are included description, history, geological and hydro geological conditions of the proposed area as well as the current conditions of the territory.
