Analytical data on samples of bottom sediments of the Novaya river watercourse made it possible to identify areas of pollution, sources of pollution and determine the nature of the influence of the anthropogenic factor on the state of the river. It was found that bottom sediments are divided into slightly polluted, moderately polluted, and dangerously polluted. Soils on the total indicator of pollution belong to the permissible category. The list of defined indicators includes: hydrogen index (pH), total metal content (cadmium, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, zinc), arsenic, petroleum products, benz(a)pyrene, ammonium nitrogen, phosphate ion, organic matter. Based on the results of the interpretation of the laboratory data, it was found that in accordance with the Regional standard, the precipitation the majority of samples are slightly polluted; at some samples, are moderately polluted; at a quarter of samples are dangerously polluted.
