In this paper an attempt is made to compare several methods used for the purpose of risk analysis in cases of water pollution emergencies. The importance of the existence of quality assurance and quality control programs is highlighted. The risk management protocols frequently used for such purposes are thoroughly analyzed and discussed. Various methods aiming to the identification and evaluation of risks are demonstrated, such as the Bayesian formula, the Mortmethod, the Geographic Information System, and the Fuzzy fault tree analysis (FFTA). Action recommendations in order to avoid as much as possible the catastrophic consequences of an accident in the aquatic environment are provided.
