Hydrological observations on rivers are being automated. Vasif Aliyev, deputy head of the hydrometeorological service of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources, told Azeri Daily.

Recently, the observed noticeable decrease in the water content of the main waterways of the republic dictates the need for accurate hydrological monitoring of rivers.

Modernisation of the observation network will provide an opportunity for a timely and accurate assessment of the current state, which, in turn, will be the basis for correct planning of water use.

For this purpose, the task was set to equip the hydrological stations of the Ministry of Ecology and Natural Resources with the latest equipment as soon as possible. It should be noted that for the first time in the history of Hydromet's existence, the automation of hydrological stations is being carried out.

It is planned to install 17 sets of the specified equipment at various points, which were selected for this purpose, taking into account certain criteria, such as the duration of a series of observations, significance for various areas of the national economy, as well as the geographical features of the area.
