ABSTRACT
The current status of Romania as European Community membership gives, in addition to a number of rights, many obligations concerning especially the implementation and compliance with relevant EU regulations. In the water sector The European Commission considered necessary the development of a new, common, uniform and consistent policy, which takes into account all the aspects linked both to human needs as well as to the existence of ecosystems and to sustainable development of water resources. Back in 2000, after a long decisional process, the European Community approved the Water Framework Directive (Directive 2000/60/EC), which established a policy framework for water management in the European Union based on sustainable development principles and which integrated all water issues, including problems of water’s integrated monitoring. In Romania the water’s monitoring system has been working since the early twentieth century, but since 1976 when the Water Directorate at basinal level were established this system has been developing into a scientific and defining structure. Water monitoring network has continuously suffered additions and improvements, but since 2002 the question of the modernization and the development of water integrated monitoring system was raised so it could meet European standards and the monitoring requirements and it could run in a dynamic, complex process and with spiral development. In this paper we presented some aspects concerning the synthesis of integrated water monitoring system, important mechanism for water resources management, applied to the Siret Basin by Siret River Basin Administration (ABAS).
