AbstractAssessment of water chemical properties for ten small moraine ponds within the catchment of the Borucinka river in the Kashubian Lake District was attempted. Additionally, in fluence of the selected environmental characteristics on functioning of these insignificant water ecosystems was evaluated. Ten ponds varying in terms of catchment usage structure, hydrologic type and size of surface area were selected for the studies. Impact of the catchment management on water quality was evaluated. In addition, it was verified if periodic changes in the reservoir hydrological function (incorporation into the surface runoff system) significantly affected the water quality. The results confirmed that the usage structure of small reservoir catchment had a decisive in fluence on the quality of the water. The principal cause of the increasing concentrations of the analyzed ions (Li+, Na+, NH4+, Mg2+, K+, Ca2+, F ̄, Cl ̄, NO2 ̄, Br ̄, NO3–, PO43–, SO42–) was the neighborhood of farms. Seasonal changes in the nutrient (total nitrogen, total phosphorus) water concentrations were not observed. Significant changes in water quality by intermittently forming hydrographic network that interconnected the individual depressions were reported for total nitrogen only. Interestingly, the landlocked ponds, in theory continuously accumulating contaminants from the catchment area, were characterized by good hydro-chemical conditions.
