Water is one of the natural elements essential to the existence of the living world. It has a fundamental role in the development of natural processes (physico-chemical, biological, climatic, in relief modeling) and socio-economic activities, being an important means of communication and defense, a raw material for industry, a valuable source for energy, for irrigating crops, feeding the population. This paper is very topical given that its purpose is to monitor the quality of water in the Surduc Accumulation. In order to achieve this objective, water samples were taken from the Surduc Accumulation, the analyzes being performed by the Quality Laboratory of the Banat Water Basin Administration, the results being interpreted and compared with the physico-chemical quality standards of Order no. 161/2006 which allows the classification of surface waters in order to establish the ecological status of water bodies. The main quality indicators determined in the scientific paper were: pH, dissolved oxygen content, biochemical oxygen consumption, nitrite and nitrate content, ammonium, phosphates, hardness, conductivity, iron, copper content, phenols and arsenic. Following the analysis it was determined that the water is neutral to basic, the oxygen content falls the water in class I-a, II-nd quality, the nutrient content in class II of quality, and occasionally detected amounts of phenol and arsenic content.
