«Water quality monitoring in the Selenga River delta»

Baikal Institute of nature management (Russia), Limnological Institute (Russia)

The Project supports annual water quality monitoring on chemical, microbiological and hydrobiological indicators in the Selenga River delta.

2014 showed extremely low water flow of the Selenga River with biogenic substances and dissolved oxygen content not exceeding set regulation value. There were increased concentrations of heavy metals in surface waters of the 2014 summer period. High concentration of microorganisms, including potentially pathogenic microflora, indicates low level of water quality and necessity of limitations of water use in recreational purposes.
