The paper analyses dependence of water quality parameters on flow rates at several sites in the Vltava River catchment in the Czech Republic. The presented results indicate that at the monitored sites, concentrations of nitrates, suspended solids and dissolved oxygen are in direct relation to flow rate. Temperature has an inverse relationship to flow rate. Other parameters show various relationships to flow rate at individual monitored sites or do not show any statistically significant relations.

Keywords: Water quality, Flow rate, Point pollution source, Nonpoint pollution source, Drought, Flood.
