Abstract

This paper presents a comprehensive research of the processes and activities associated with the Tsimlyansk reservoir multipurpose water scheme. Both quantitative and qualitative assessment of the reservoir has been performed using the data obtained in order to secure research quality. Based on water silt characteristics we assessed possible operation time of the Tsimlyansk reservoir. In attempt to analyze water balance of this reservoir we managed to integrate a set of changes into the processes of water resource formation and its exploitation. This report presents composite index results of reservoir water pollution for the period 2000–2009. Additionally, this assessment investigates the influence of the various reservoir processes on the water quality. Based on the analysis of results we identified the preconditions for sustainable development of multipurpose water scheme of the Tsimlyansk reservoir together with the coefficients that could reduce the intensity of siltation process.
