The subject deals with the issue of water supply from the source, from raw water intake, treatment processes, accumulation and distribution of drinking water to the consumers, to its subsequent use by specific customers (eg. balneology and food production). The subject also includes the basics of hydrochemistry and hydrobiology of drinking water and water in the source.
