Abstract
The purpose of the research conducted in the years 2008–2009 was to determine the effect of wastewater generated by several tourist lodges in Tatra National Park (an alpine environment) on the concentration of biogenic ions (NH4 +, NO2 −, NO3 − and PO4 3−) in local streams into which the wastewater was being discharged. Wastewater discharged from mechanical biological wastewater treatment plants operated by tourist lodges usually has high concentrations of NH4 + and PO4 3−. The largest loads of biogenic ions were discharged into streams during the tourist season from May until September. Although the dilution conditions were good, the concentrations of some form...
