The article deals with territorial aspects of water quality attributes in the Lužnice Basin. Special emphasis has been put on the running water quality. The impact of human activity on the water quality has been studied. Basic field research aimed at BCO5, NO3-, NH4+, NO2-, and TP concentrations. The importance of phosphorus as the main factor in the process of eutrophication has been stressed. An input-output balance model of chemical elements is presented (1993).
