The expeditionary explorations let to find out following aspects of ecological conditions of the Vyazma river:

  1. The depth of the river pollution from the Vyazma town drainages is rather sizeable and continues to grow up because of bad work of the town treatment plants, expanding the contaminants on the factories (especially on the tannery), and worsening the sanitary state of the town territory.
  2. Sizeable river pollution extends on about one third of its length and becomes invisible after one half.
  3. Improvement of the river’s cleanability is caused by intensive overgrowing with the water growth and absence of agricultural pollutants which functioned earlier.
  4. The river’s fauna gets the serious damage from uncontrolled poaching and especially because of electric rods using.
  5. The river doesn’t lose its recreation potential downstream, and new houses are building up intensive in some village.
