The water quality monitoring of selected streams in Prague (which harbour in their catchment area natural bathing places) during 2018–2019 included also the monitoring of two hydrobiological indicators; the phytobenthos and macroinvertebrates communities.
Water quality of the Prague’s streams. Part 2: tributaries to the Šeberák pond and to the Hostivař reservoir
The possibility of a recreational use of some of the Prague reservoirs is limited mainly by the quality of the tributaries. The article follows the previous one and sums up the results of the water quality monitoring in selected profiles of the tributaries of the Šeberák pond (the Vestecký and the Kunratický streams) and of the Hostivař dam (the Botič and the Pitkovický streams) during 2018.
Results of water quality observation in the selected profiles on the Motolský and Litovický streams during the year 2018 are presented. Monitoring of water quality parameters was focused mainly on the nutrients content (nitrogen and phosphorus), chlorophyll-a concentrations and on the phytoplankton and zooplankton species composition.
