ABSTRACT
The Bukowy stream is the right-bank tributary of the Brennica river, and the river catchment is situated within the administrative borders of Brenna commune. In the stream’s 2.76 square kilometer catchment 15 springs have been identified, in which several series of discharge measurements were made in 2014. The results allowed the springs to be classified according to their discharge capacity in relation to the values existing in scientific literature. Moreover, thanks to the results, it was possible to define numerous parameters such as: variability of spring discharge, degree of springs occurrence in a given area, capacity of springs according to Meinzer’s classification; and basing on the monitoring of the water discharge in the cross-section closing the catchment its draining rate was determined. The simultaneous measurements of electrical conductivity and temperature of water allowed to separate maintenance tanks for given springs.
