The aim of water monitoring in irrigation systems is to develop methods and measures to control qualitative and quantitative characteristics of irrigation water. This paper deals with problems related to the characteristics and criteria for assessment of surface and underground waters as main environmental components in irrigation systems. Problems related to irrigation and drainage waters are also covered as they constitute sources for the present and future pollution.The methodology of monitoring and organization, terms of sampling and their calculation, and the method for ecological assessment of real conditions in irrigation systems are given.The results can be used by water users, state offices delivering water, and regional environmental control offices, located in corresponding agricultural regions, to control water quality and quantity impacts on the environment.
