The aim of the study was to determine the effect of cement and lime industry, the quality of the snow cover within Białe Zagłębie in the Świętokrzyskie Mountains. Analyzed the meteorological and orographic conditions which determine the keep of snow cover during the winter 2012 and identified emission sources and determining the chemical properties water obtained from melted snow collected in the field. Laboratory tests were carried out using a gas chromatograph ion DIONEX ICS-300 multiparameter meter CX-701 and ORIGIN 8.6 and STATISTICA and 10.0. software. The obtained results allow to a large extent determine the role of snow cover as an indicator of air pollution in an area with significant industrial anthropogenic, indicating the serial nature of additional factors that determine its size.
