Objectives:Any alterations in the way the catchment basin is used, for instance caused by urbanization, the development of industry or agricultural intensification, lead to the deterioration of the quality of surface waters. Monitoring of water quality is, then, the basic method of controlling the water environment. In the diagnosis of the condition of water ecosystem the indices based on physico-chemical and biological parameters (f. e. phytoplankton, periphyton, hydromacrophytes, benthic macroinvertebrates) will be used. In case of eutrophic lakes with permanent domination of cyanobacteria achieving and maintaining the satisfactory quality of waters is often associated with restoration.

Outcomes:The evaluation of the water ecosystem affected by restoration will be made by students on the example of Lake Durowskie in the middle of the vegetation period.
