   The article considers the problem of evaluating the quality of groundwater.  A technique for environmental monitoring of spring and ground waters in the Sevastopol region is proposed.  The main stages of the research are: choosing determined components characterizing the quality and degree of groundwater pollution, and ranking of sources according to a number of criteria, which allows identifying the frequency of repeated measurements.  It is found that 49% of the studied sources are “contaminated” and not suitable for drinking and using them for agricultural needs.  According to the results of regular monitoring of both “relatively clean” and “contaminated” groups, a tendency to increasing the level of pollution of springs with nitrates is revealed.

Keywords: environmental monitoring, underground sources, evaluation, quality, Sevastopol region, pollution.
