The need for continuous monitoring of surface water quality in order to produce estimations necessary to maintain and provide the sufficiently sources and quality of groundwater is an ongoing concern of the authorities in the protection of water quality. For drinking water sources such studies are required by European legislation. According to the usage degree of surface water for drinking water established by the Romanian Waters Administration, the Buzau-Ialomita basin represents 3.5% of the total water resources. Inside of this basin, the Maneciu-Cheia area has, besides surface waters, an intensively exploited natural lake being an area sensitive to climate change. This paper aims to analyze the influence of climate change on forest ecosystems and on water quality in the mentioned area. The study having been developed within the European project CC-WARE. The relevant physico-chemical indicators analyzed in the paper are: temperature, organic matter, nutrients, turbidity and pH. As novelty items, tracking the influence of climate change within the CC-WARE project enables the estimation of water resources vulnerability and the prediction of water quality in the studied area for the years 2015 and 2020, based on the monitoring data.
