Abstract

AbstractA brief description is given for the natural conditions and economic activity on a local drainage basin of the Cheboksary Reservoir (less the Oka Basin). The main principles of a new version of landscape-hydrological method used to evaluate nutrient runoff from the drainage basin into water bodies are given. The article presents the values of the runoff of these elements into the Cheboksary Reservoir calculated taking into account the effect of the drainage basin and anthropogenic load from mineral and organic fertilizers applied on agricultural fields and the input of wastes onto the drainage basin from the population that have no access to sewage system.
