It combines the implementation of professional, administrative and development tasks, which were carried out by the Institute for Water of the Republic of Slovenia,  Slovenian Environment Agency or the Ministry of the Environment and Spatial Planning.

The system of integrated water management is organized and staffed at national level and by river basins at regional level. A part of Slovenian Water Agency is organized in eight regional units. Slovenian Water Agency also provides opportunities for effective public service, investment management and cooperation with the profession and stakeholders.

The competence of the Slovenian Water Agency includes the granting of water rights by water permit, the issue of water consents, the management of water and coastal land owned by the Republic of Slovenia.

River engineering activities are part of public service activities and include four main tasks: 1) preservation and regulation of water, 2) protection from harmful effect of water, 3) maintenance of water and riparian zone and 4) preservation of hydromorphological status of water.
