Water is an important natural asset – Slovenia is among the richest in Europe in terms of abundance of water sources.
Around 34 billion cubic metres of water flow through Slovenian rivers and streams every year, four times the European average of water quantity per person. As the majority of rivers have their source in the Alps, most of the drinking water can be found upstream.
The wealth of water in Slovenia is augmented by springs, natural and artificial lakes and part of the northern Adriatic. Water supply in Slovenia is provided to 99% of inhabitants in their households.
All across Slovenia the water is of high quality and safe to drink.
