The subject of the present article is the evaluation of the use of different water types in the production of concrete mix and C20/25 class concrete (assuming the same composition). Taking as an example a selected Subcarpathia-based concrete production plant, equipped with a process water management system, the research analysed the quantity-quality parameters of drinking water, sewage water, and groundwater and evaluated them for their accordance with mixing-water quality standards. ; It should be emphasised that the majority of specifications recommend the use of drinking water for concrete production. The paper presents the results of research which analysed the impact of water quality on selected properties of concrete mix and concrete (consistency; compressive strength after 7, 14, and 28 days; density). The results obtained confirmed the findings of the research on the suitability of recycled water for concrete production.
