Conservation of ground water quality on national and regional level has in Slovenia high priority, both from strategic and developmental point of view. Ground water is important natural source, which is limited by quantity and has low rate of renewal. It is important source of drinking water for citizens. The main bodies of groundwater are in gravel plains, which are attractive for settlement and economic activities (agriculture, industry, transport). Burdening of groundwater is a result of all mentioned human activities as well as their interactions. Cumulative burdening of groundwater is a result of different composition and intensity of pressures in specific area. Knowledge on specificity and intensity of urbanisation, industry and agriculture in each specific area, and considering differences in self-purification processes, is necessary for integral approach for ground water quality conservation strategy.
