This article on the geographically conceived hydrology at the Faculty of Science, Charles University, Prague, describes the period since the middle 1980's till the present. During the last 20 years, the research orientation of hydrology has sensibly changed when its has got oriented at practical needs. The main attention has been aimed at the analysis of groundwater quality. The geologists of the Faculty of Science have concentrated their attention at the impact of area (diffused) sources of pollutants. A particular attention has been traditionally paid to the research on lakes and newly to the revilatization of waters.
