Water is the basic ingredient necessary for the maintenance of life of people and makes 60 - 70% of body weight. It is the most important ingredient in the tissue of plants and animals. In addition, water is one of the most important raw materials in industry. Due to irresponsible use of water in the past, there is great danger that humanity will have serious problems in the future, both in terms of water quantity and in terms of water quality. It is still not too late that from this point forward, all of humanity take austerity measures and water conservation as a strategic raw material in the future. Every individual and every community, both individual and joint efforts can at least mitigate this problem.
Quality and hygiene of drinking water and water as raw materials in the food industry today are the parameters of quality of life, of which each local community must take more into account. The paper analyzes the situation in water abstraction from the wells that supplied Srbac drinking water, and chemical and microbiological quality of water in the aquifer, the water supply network and the reach of water consumption in the period from 2005-2009. The results obtained in this paper suggest that the appreciation of the applicable regulations in this area and conscientious work of all participants in the supply chain can affect the water today for the needs of the population can provide a satisfactory water quality, and at the same time can preserve water reserves for future generations.
