For the first time in the Middle Ob Basin, new data of importance for evaluating the quality of swamp and river water were obtained, characterizing the microcomponent composition of extractive organic compounds. More than 150 compounds of natural genesis were identified. The water of oligotrophic and mesotrophic bogs shows widest diversity and maximal, almost equal masses of extractable organic substances, averaging 13357 ng/L. In the water of eutrophic bogs and taiga rivers, this characteristic is five times lower; and that in lakes is lower by more than an order of magnitude. The amount of extractive trace components is closely correlated with the concentration of water-soluble carbon of humic nature. It was established that the natural water of taiga zone identical in terms of the fulvate type differs in the composition of organic trace components and can be grouped into four clusters: (a) water of oligotrophic bogs, (b) water of mesotrophic bogs, (c) river water, and (d) water of eutrophic bogs and bog lakes.
