Assessment of pond "Official", located in the village of Ferzikovo in Kaluga region

the Problem of water pollution now applies to almost all settlements, and our village is no exception. Pond "State" has a long history. He's the same age as Syzran-Vyazma railway. It is more than 150 years. Therefore, we consider the problem of pollution of the pond "State" very relevant and noteworthy.

monitoring and analysis of the status of the river Bolva

Bolva  — the river , provechosa on-site kaluzhskoi I bryanskoi oblastey Russian, is a left tributary Desny.

Its length is 213 km, and in the Kaluga region, it stretches 121 km, and 92 km of runs in the Bryansk region. The source of the Bolva is located near the village Bolaclose to the city Spas-Demensk kaluzhskoi oblast on the southern slopes of Smolensk upland. Proceeds mainly in a southerly direction. 

the river city Spas-DemenskKirovLudinovoFokinoBrussels. Flows into Desno in the city Bryansk.

the ecosystem of the Bolva is very rich in flora and fauna. In our days, the Bolva lost its industrial purpose, it is not fused forest, not sailing ships and barges with goods, but it remained an ornament of our region, a favorite place of tourists and locals. 

currently, the Bolva is used as a source for irrigation, wetlands, water supply and partly for fishing. In XVIII-XIX centuries its significance was much wider.

Thus, from the historical background we learned that the river Bolva had industrial importance. At the moment, one of the largest rivers of our region is in a sad condition: the water level has fallen dramatically, the shore of the polluted household waste water there is an unpleasant smell, the water muddy and dirty. We are concerned about this situation, in view of the fact that the river Bolva is a favorite family vacation spot of inhabitants of several cities.

The study of water purity in Obukhov's career in the territory adjacent to the village of Obukhovo, Kaluga region

Obukhov quarry located near the village of Obukhovo in 500 meters from the neighborhood of the  Kurowski of the city of Kaluga (54.546652, 36.027119). The area around the quarry has a large recreational load from spring to late autumn. On its banks are always a lot of tourists. During the summer (June to August) there are a lot babies in the water. 

Obukhov quarry is  a favorite vacation spot. We decided to check the water quality  in using methods of bioindication. 

On the territory of the Obukhov career this study was conducted for the first time.

Environmental monitoring system of cascading ponds at the village of Rozhdestveno of the right Bank district of the city of Kaluga

the overgrown System of cascading ponds near the road to the village of Rozhdestveno on the right Bank attracted us with its little-studied.

According to forecasts of the government of Kaluga region the population of the Right Bank by 2021 will amount to 200,000 gateley. The district already can be called a separate city. It is rapidly growing and with the development in this increasingly differenciate its functional zones: industrial, residential, recreational. With 2015 as a landscape-recreational zone for the inhabitants of the right Bank in place of the mixed wood was opened Provincial Park which is directly adjacent the object of our study - the ponds near the village of rozhdestvenno. 

In the literature we have not found any information about the survey these ponds.  for a Long time, these ponds and surrounding areas in the amount of 29900 m2 served  training ground Kaluga irrigation College. But judging by the abandonment of the territory, the means to construction of the landfill, but it is not. And ponds without proper care, overgrown, people rarely visit these places, catch fish, gather berries and mushrooms, enjoying the beauty of almost wild nature. But with proper solution to this problem would be to turn the pond cascades into a lovely tourist resort in summer and winter!

Due to the low species diversity and small amounts of water, as well as interference by man, ponds – ecosystems that are most vulnerable to violations because of the fall of their resistance (they are less viable and require special attention and control by the person). It is these features and we are interested in the choice of the research object.

the idea of the project: environmental monitoring of water, sediment and coastal soil system of cascading ponds will allow you to make the right decision about their future use and will attract attention to the problem of protection of water bodies.

The study of the natural sulfur springs on the territory of the rural settlement of Rosva city district, Kaluga region

On the territory of the rural settlement of Rosva Kaluga for a long time (in the middle of the last century) is known about the presence of two natural sulphur sources (Source # 1: 54°32'38.3"N 36°03'35.4"E source # 2: 54°30'21.35"N 36°4'34.72"E). The study of waters and the monitoring of these sources is  still no one did.

in our work, We decided to find out:  1) how much water our hydrogen sulfide  sources corresponds to the name “hydrogen sulfide”; 2) whether it is safe for use as therapeutic targets; 3)  to spend  laboratory analysis of water to find out what is the origin of our studied objects; 4)pay attention to the living organisms (zoobenthos and algae) living directly  in the source and characteristics of plants,  growing in the immediate vicinity.

This  problem   first of all important for the residents of the rural settlement of Rosva and neighborhood Kurowski of the city of Kaluga, as the residents of these places have long used the water of sulphur springs for medicinal purposes, and  known as “nothing is more precious than human life”.

"LIVE, SPRING, THE JOY OF THE PEOPLE!"

Problem: is a mismatch between the desire of the villagers to use pure spring water and natural source.

Hypothesis: if you prove to the population that the water from a local spring useful  for drinking, it will change people's attitude to the source.

the relevance of the project that: in our village are frequent water shortages, the population goes to fetch water at a nearby spring, located 5 km. from our village, i.e. the spring - it is a strategic object of nature. When you have an emergency, the spring is the only source of drinking water for the population. Information on the laboratory analysis of spring water quality previously absent. The project will determine current data on the status of spring, and conducted environmental studies will clarify the environmental conditions of the area where the spring passes.

project Objective: to contribute to the improvement of the environmental situation in the village Nekrasovo through the improvement of spring

Objectives:

to study the ecological status of the natural spring as a water source by monitoring a given object.

- to gain experience of practical actions to improve the environmental  situation of, springs;

- obtain the theoretical knowledge for the study of springs;

- to learn how to work on techniques for determining the physical and chemical characteristics of water;

- set the quality of water with sanitary norms

- to compile a passport of a spring;

- to promote the value and necessity of preservation of the spring, to develop a recovery program;

- to develop the foundations of environmental, ecological skills

- organize activities on the improvement of a spring.
