Surveys are regularly carried out to help predict the scale of future floods and adjust the operation of structures.

The reservoirs supplying Moscow with water are prepared for winter conditions. This was announced by the Deputy Mayor of Moscow in the Moscow Government Peter Biryukov.

“A stable snow cover has formed in the catchment areas in the Moscow, Smolensk and Tver regions,” he said. “In this regard, 15 reservoirs of the Moskvoretsko-Vazuzskaya and Volzhskaya water systems, which provide the capital with water, have been switched to winter operation.”

For the successful passage of floods next spring, the employees of the hydraulic structures created an additional free tank.

“This will make it possible to receive all melt water from the catchment areas, the total area of ​​which is 50 thousand square kilometers, and to exclude flooding of non-floodplain areas,” explained Pyotr Biryukov. “At present, the operation of hydraulic structures guarantees a balanced inflow and consumption of the resource, providing reliable water supply to the capital region.”

In winter, the employees of the hydroelectric complex regularly carry out snow-measuring surveys in order to predict the scale of future floods and to correct the operation of the structures.

The Moskvoretsko-Vazuzskaya and Volzhskaya water systems include 15 reservoirs in the Moscow, Smolensk and Tver regions. From these, water goes to the water treatment plant. There are four of them in the capital – Rublevskaya, North, West and East.
