Abstract: We are doing biological and chemical water quality assessments for 2 drainage systems on Nagyvájás Canal and Keleti-öv Canal as well as Canal of Máriapócs in Nyírség region (Hungary) since 2008. The main goals of the present study were to determinate macroinvertebrate taxa (bioindication for calculation of the BBI and to do comparative analytical examinations at encountered of the two canals. Because we have found flacons including chemical residua at the Nagy-vájás monitoring sampling stations, there is a possibility of a stronger pollution. In case of Canal Máriapócs, we compared the water quality of the in- and outflow section of the reservoir Levelek. We could state that in cases of Keleti-öv- and Nagy-vájás Canal the quality of the water is excellent, based on the used methods and the parameters we examined. On the basis of macroinvertebrate taxa, the water flows could be classified into the moderately polluted quality class. The most common taxa are: Asellus sp., Plea sp., Chironomidae, Ilyochoris sp. and Caenis sp. The water body of this canal is not affected by human activities appreciably although the growing rate of tourism would be unfavorable on water quality and macroinvertebrate communities.
