ABSTRACT
The source "Pribitu" is one of the most significant sources in the eastern Herzegovina. It is highly reach in groundwater and a subject of interest in terms of water exploitation and bottling. It is connected to Cretaceous limestones where an aquifer was formed. Limestones are cracked and karstified, well permeable, thus providing movement of water towards the source, with a discharge in hydrological minimum of 22.3 l/s. The source was sufficiently explored and determination of its geological, hydrogeological, chemical and microbiological properties was performed. Conducted analyses indicated that water of the source Pribitu is of high quality and that it meets all requirements prescribed by applicable legislation of the European Union.
