Abstract:Monitoring surface and underground water flows and water quality is important regardless of geographical location. In some countries such as Hungary, Europe it is even more essential, where water replenishes from bordering countries in 95%, and externally (former Soviet Union) was forced to perform mining next to extremely vulnerable water resources without any environmental consideration. City of Pécs in the last couple of years, decades has launched several integrated GIS and MIS project using national and international funds (ISPA, EU) to monitor water quality surrounding the former uranium mining facilities to protect its water reservoirs. The system is informing the relevant experts, institutions and even the communities online about the habitats' environmental status, and the result of the rehabilitation programs.
