ABSTRACT: Hydrogeological researches during the period 2000-2004. of the karst area of Devica in the immediate surroundings of Soko Banja spa in Eastern Serbia, resulted in developing solution for regulation of the aquifer. During the research, a complex of methods, such as structural-geological, balance-hydrometrical, thermometrical, geophysical, hydrochemical etc., has been used, on the basis of which the locality of „Lepterija“ in the gorge of the Moravica (Soko Banja spa), was separated as the most perspective for regulation of the aquifer. The choice of the technical solution (the type of tapping, its micro-location and technical characteristics) was conditioned by results of the researches. As a result of the research, the capturing of the ground water has been done, which secured sufficiend supplies of drinking water for the town Soko Banja spa.
Key words: karst, thermometrical researches, mise à la masse, regulation of the aquifer
