The development of the Slovak public water supplies has fallen behind other European countries. In 2007, only 86,3% of the population was connected to public water systems, which supplied them with drinking water. Paper deals with issues relating to water resources, water utilization, water quality and protection, water supply systems. The major objective of the Slovak Republic (SR) as a member of the European Union (EU) includes adopting and implementing EU legislation with respect to the Slovak environment. This is a highly demanding task, in particular for those Slovak authorities and organizations responsible for meeting these requirements. The task is especially formidable since, besides resolving all major current problems, they are also expected to outline the future perspectives of Slovak water management.
