  • This article examines the privatization of drinking water quality in South Texas colonias. It focuses on the emergence of the ‘water consumer’, or the individual who purchases drinking water from the vending machine. This approach addresses
  • the coproduction of political subjectivities in relation to institutional change and how subjectivity reconstitutes a new hydrosocial relationship mediated by the water vending machine. It argues for a relational approach that attends to the production of political

  • Using a sample of 900 persons from the urban area of Ljubljansko polje and the suburban area of Iški vršaj, we tried to determine how much local residents knew about the protection zones for drinking water resources. We employed a survey
  • questionnaire and the drawing of cognitive maps. A little fewer than half of the people are aware they live in water protection zones. The proportions of those who are aware of the protection zones in Ljubljansko polje (two fifths) and in Iški vršaj (two thirds

  • Karst springs are important resources of local drinking water supply, covering almost half of the country’s needs. This paper discusses water supply in the past and today, problems and challenges that it is facing. The quality of karst water sources
  • is good but the protection of catchment areas is insufficient. To keep our biggest reservoir of qualitative drinking water safe, further planning of water supply will need to base on appropriate research, as are the presented ones. - (L'A.).
  • Cartography ; Drinking water ; Groundwater ; Karst ; Pollution ; Slovenia
  • The article presents potential and actual sources of groundwater contamination on the Kras plateau, which is the recharge area of the Klariči karst water source that provides drinking water for the Kras plateau and Koprsko primorje. The water source
  • is insufficiently protected due to inadequate water protection policy and the control over the implementation of the provisions has often been ineffective. Untreated wastewaters, illegal waste-disposal dumps and traffic endanger the water source. The hazards
  • are shown on a simplified map that could be, in a suitable scale, a valuable practical tool for further water source protection and in land-use planning. - (IKR)
