The anthropogenic impact on urban rivers is very significant. Industrial enterprises, municipal, and agricultural organizations discharge wastewater directly into the rivers. In the samples of the studied water, certain properties were found. The water in the river is cloudy, brown in color, and in some places has a sharp smell. Extraneous impurities and foam were detected in water. Moreover, various chemicals were found, which are not characteristic to natural waters. The analyzed water is highly polluted as shown by the following chemical indicators, which reported results higher than the Maximum Allowable Concentration: Fe concentration is 24 times higher than standard, Cu is 5 times higher, Mn is 6 times higher, Al is 366 times higher, Hg is 3 times higher, Zn is 4 times higher, NO2 is 2.5 times higher, hydrocarbon pollution is 2.8 times higher, NH4 is 1.9 times higher. Therefore, it is necessary to immediately develop effective methods for monitoring the state of the watercourse, both economic and energetic. To save the sustainable development of the natural system.
