The examination of anthropogenic impacts on the water quality of the Kácsi Stream (Hungary)
The fact that freshwaters are becoming affected increasingly by a wide range of stressors, mainly because of various human activities, is acknowledged by many national and international organizations. Thus, not only the protection and quality management of natural waters but the examination and identification of the origin of the contaminants are relevant research topics. In the article, the main correlation between the anthropogenic activities and stream water quality are observed in case of Kácsi Stream in Northeast Hungary. Based on the chemical properties and contaminants, it can be stated that mainly the agricultural effects can be observed on the water quality. Furthermore, the use of fertilizers with different compositions can also be detected.
