Abstract

This article explores cultural and ecological values associated with water bodies, which can be considered helpful tools for both sustainable management and strengthening of responsibilities of the general public towards water bodies. The paper begins by setting out a bioindicator assessment for the quality of streams. That is then extended with cultural values of water quality.
