A b s t r a c t. The article presents the causes of groundwater quality deterioration resulted from bacterial and chemical contamination of the Tursko A well-field supplying water for the town Pleszew and surrounding villages. Presented problem is an example of serious consequences resulted from the lack of properly functioning rules of groundwater monitoring systems and regulations of groundwater protection, particularly in cases of high vulnerability of an aquifer exposed to influence of diverse groundwater pollution sources.
