ABSTRACT
The paper analyses the potential impacts of various state roads on aquifers in Slovenia.A short introduction about groundwater protection standards and an overview of current practice of groundwater protection from road network impacts is given. On the state level, the hydrogeological conditions were analysed according to the various categories of roadsthat cross them. According to this analysis, the ratio of the impact potential of the aquifer crossed by a road type is calculated on the state level. The ratio is represented as the quotient between the share of aquifer crossings by a type of roads and the share of aparticular aquifer on the state level.
