ABSTRACT
Our research goal was to study the environmental impact of mining activity on the Turţ Creek. For this aim we performed on site and laboratory investigations. The pH and electric conductivity values (e.g. 2.5–3.4 for pH, and 2088 µS cm-1 for electric conductivity) indicated that the mining activity has a strong and unfavourable effect on physico-chemical parameters of the aquatic environment and on living organisms that inhabit the creek. The phytotoxicological test revealed that inflowing acid mine drainage creates a specific toxic habitat in the surroundings of the Turţ Creek.
