Review of Groundwater Resources
Assessment of groundwater resources was an integral part of the regional hydrogeological survey of Czechoslovakia and later the Czech Republic performed in the period 1966–1990. Meanwhile, methods of investigation and conditions of groundwater recharge have changed. Therefore, the former values of groundwater resources are now older than 20–30 years and their actual relevance is very problematic. The Czech Geological Survey has proposed the project called Review of Groundwater Resources, which reflected a rated review of the former results and should comply with the requirements of the water balance according the Czech Water Act and characterization of quantitative status of the groundwater bodies according the European Water Framework Directive. This project includes 56 hydrogeological zones which should be newly reviewed.
