Abstract (in english)
   The Police Basin covers about 230 km2 of the Bohemian Cretaceous Basin in the northeastern part of Bohemia (Czech Republic) near the Czech-Polish border. The Basin aquifer system includes three main fractured-rock aquifers affected by faults and uplifted margins. Groundwater flow in these aquifers is nearly horizontal, but includes vertical leakage through the separating aquitards. A recent natural groundwater resource assessment has provided a basis for rational groundwater development, taking into account the environmental impacts of groundwater abstraction, industry, agriculture and landfills. The methods used for the assessment included geological analysis, evaluation of hydrological data, precipitation-runoff modelling, well logging and aquifer testing, hydrochemical and isotope studies, and hydrogeological interpretation of all available data. The collected data were entered into a numerical groundwater flow model and integrated using GIS techniques.
   Natural groundwater resources were estimated at between 760 and 1200 l/s. A limited abstraction of 320-370 l/s recommended for the entire Police basin, with withdrawals concentrated in a few areas. Despite the influence of human activities, the groundwater generally fulfills the quality requirements for drinking water and bottled water
