Water Monitoring in Republic of Macedonia

The Republic Hydrometeorological Service performs systematic monitoring of the surface, ground water and springs. There is a network of 110 stations (68 active) for river hydrometric measurements. For groundwater levels, temperature and quality,

monitoring stations exist in several regions (Polog, Skopsko Pole, Kocansko Pole, Stipsko Pole, Strumicko Pole and Strusko Pole). However, due to present financial limitations, the monitoring activities are limited and the data availability is decreasing by the year, from 115 to presently 38 (Fig. 23.3) [10]. Organized groundwater data collection and management is missing, as well as the user cadastre, analysis of the balance of inflow-outflow from the groundwater sources as the function of the natural hydrological conditions.
