Faculty of Agriculture, Belgrade-Zemun (1,2,3)


The area of Southeast Srem is rich in groundwater. Water regime of the first aquifer has a great significance from the standpoint of agricultural production. 32 piezometers were singled out and groundwater depth was measured aiming at the analysis of some groundwater characteristics. In the area of Southeast Srem, groundwater level fluctuates very widely, depending on the distance from water courses. Mean value of groundwater fluctuation in Southeast Srem amounts to 3.49m. In this area, groundwater moves in Southeast direction, i.e. in the direction of the main receiving streams of the region, the Sava and the Danube. The greatest risk of groundwater overflowing in Southeast Srem occurs in the central parts of the loess terrace and in low parts of the alluvial plain along the Sava, where groundwater level is at the depth of less than 1m.
