Urbanization has significant effect on the environment, management of water resources and waste systems, air pollution, road infrastructure etc. Tbilisi water reservoir is an important recreational resource that is why the assessment of its ecological and qualitative state is necessary for implementation of available resource potential. Assessment of hydrological conditions is important for use of aquatic eco-systems of water reservoirs and adjacent territories for recreational purposes. Cause and effect relationships between recreational load and hydrodynamic characteristics of water are analyzed in this article; also the attractiveness index is established that enables us to identify vulnerable sectors and issues.
