Kopalińskie Lake as an example of an anthropogenic reservoir of the southern Baltic Sea coast

Abstract

The aim of this study is to discuss the water balance of Kopalińskie Lake, which is one of a few reservoirs on the Polish coast formed from anthropogenic activity. To realize this aim, lake basin morphometry and catchment hydrography were characterized. Moreover, the influence of the sea and the physico-chemical characteristics of the lake water were defined. As a result, the main characteristics of the lake and its catchment were found. Common characteristics of Kopalińskie Lake, as well as the characteristics that differentiate this reservoir from the other coastal lakes located on the Polish coast are presented in this work.

The assessment of the impact of retention reservoirs on the water quality of streams in urban areas (Oruński Stream catchment case)

Abstract

The goal of this paper is to assess the impact of reservoirs on the water quality of watercourses in the urbanized catchment. To realize this goal Oruński Stream catchment was characterized with particular emphasis on retention reservoirs located within the catchment. Studies carried out were to show that these retention reservoirs change the water quality of the stream flowing through it and what the direction of these changes is.
