Water object

WATER OBJECT (EN: water object; DE: Wasserobjekt; FR: chautier hydrologique; ES: objeto hidrologico; RU: водный объект) is the natural or artificially created concentration of the water, which is or may be the source for the water usage, for the water supply, or for the water flooding of the mine workings. There belong to the water objects the superficial (rivers, canals, lakes, water reservoirs, glaciers, internal marine waters, and territorial waters), underground (basins, underground water reservoirs, deposits of the useful minerals, aquifers and aquiferous complexes), and also the underground mine waters and open-pit mine waters, which are concentrated within the mine workings, and may be used for the household and drinking needs, or may manifest themselves in the form of the breakthroughs into the mine workings.
