Sažetak

This paper analyses the quality of municipal water in the hotels in the area of Rijeka as well as the amount of its consumption. This paper also discusses the probability of contamination and consequences that tourists and citizens who use such water could suffer. The area of this water system belongs to the karst relief marked by a significant underground circulation and high sensitivity to external influences which leads to contamination. Considering the peculiarity of karst aquifers, during heavy rainfalls after long dry periods there is a possibility of turbidity and microbiological water contamination which usually are not long lasting. Despite occasional hydro geological problems, the public utility company has organised a system for monitoring water quality in water supply system and sanitary correct drinking water is discharged into the system. Besides being drinking water, that water is clean and has good quality of mineral composition. Although Rijeka’s water supply system is leading in Croatia according to security of water supply and drinking water, consumption in hotels is mainly related to sanitary water, because tourists do not have the habit of drinking tap water or they are not enough informed about such possibilities.
