ABSTRACT
THE DANUBE WATER INTEGRATED MANAGEMENT (WATER) PROJECT is a Romania – Bulgaria international common project. The main objectives of the project is to improving water monitoring and warnings system and environmental data dissemination on the Romanian – Bulgarian border counties in order to sustainable use and protection of natural resources and environment and promotion of efficient risk management in the cross-border area. The paper present a part of the groundwater research results, respectively lithological and hydrogeological considerations concerning the Quaternary deposits on the left side of the Danube, between Vedea and Arges rivers, base on the observation wells belonging to the National Hydrogeological Network for shallow aquifer. The wells intercepted both alluvial deposits belonging to the Danube flood plain, and alluvial deposits belonging to different terrace levels. From the lithological point of view, the flood plain deposits are mainly made of sands with gravels, locally with intercalations of sands with gravels. In their upper part subordinately develop sands with gravels, sands, argillaceous sands, argillacous sandy silts, silty sands. The alluvial deposits from the composition of the terraces are made of at the base by sands with gravels and boulders. Towards the upper part granulometry decrease, passing from sands with gravels and boulders to sands with gravels, sands and argillaceous sands. The upper part is made of loessoid deposits, represented by sandy silts, argillaceous silts, argillaceous sandy silts with calcareous concretions, silty sands. The alluvial deposits from the flood plain and terraces, of Quaternary age, rest on deposits of Pliocene age (clays, marls, sands) and of Lower Cretaceous age (limestones). In the case in which the alluvial deposits from the flood plain and the terrace rest on Pliocen sands or on the Lower Cretaceous limestones, there is a direct hydraulic link between the shallow aquifer localized in these deposits and the aquifer localized in the prequaternary deposits.

Keywords: shallow aquifer, hydrogeological cross – sections, lithological and hydrogeological characteristics
