An approach for solving Danube River water pollution problem J. Kosturkov, I. Dimitrova Institute of Water Problems, Bulgarian Academy of Sciences, 1113 Sofia, Bulgaria ABSTRACT The pollution tendencies along the length of the Danube river in the up- to middle- and downstream are given. They should be regarded as schematic since the existing data are not rep- resentative, reliable and systematic. It is noted that the restoration and maintenance of water quality could be achieved with the joint efforts of the Danubian countries and the problems should be solved on the basis of well founded scientific programmes and measures. This demands the development of long-term and operative forecasts whose main points are discussed. The forecasting requires the methods of mathematical modelling to be used. The perfection of the water quality monitoring is considered and a concept for it is proposed. An integral management should be applied, economy and ecology being equal pa
