Water quality of the North Banat basal aquifer system

MetadataShow full item record
North Banat, an area of about 2329 km2 administered by six municipalities, is the extreme northeastern part of the Republic of Serbia and located in the southeastern margin of Pannonian depression. Drinking water is supplied under artesian or sub artesian pressure of Lower Pleistocene (Q1) or Upper Pliocene (Pl3) from confined aquifers. Tapped water-bearing beds in Banat dip from northeast to the south, reaching a depth of some 300 m at surrounding of Kikinda. Chemically, these 'uncommon' waters are a natural rarity controlled by geological and hydro geological characters of the water-bearing strata. The quality of water, periodically tested and examined, is discussed in this paper and its chemical composition is interpreted in terms of the regional geology.
