The Republic of Belarus is rich in fresh water resources. The sources of groundwater are widespread and of good quality, which provides a high quality of life for the citizens.
The country is taking systematic measures to combat the pollution of water bodies. The general condition of the water bodies of the Dnieper, Western Dvina, Neman and Pripyat basins has been improved. There has been a tendency to stabilize the state of water bodies in the Western Bug basin. Due to the reconstruction, modernization and construction of treatment facilities, the level of anthropogenic influence on bodies of water has been significantly reduced.
