Joint usage of Belozerskaya water feeding system of the Dnipro-Bug Canal Vladimir Korneev Central Research Institute for Complex Use of Water Resources (CRICUWR), Minsk, Republic of Belarus
Improved management of shared water resources in the upper Pripyat basin (ENVSEC ) The project is looking for a practical solution for cross-border management water flow in the upper Pripyat between Ukraine and Belarus. The countries have been unable to find a mutually acceptable solution to the existing problems of water allocation on their own, whereas the existing mechanisms of cooperation failed to fully address it as well. A successful solution will both eliminate a source of potential disagreement over the use of water resources of the Pripyat basin, and strengthen the culture of a cross-border dialogue over similar cases between the involved countries.
The part of water flow from Ukrainian Upper Pripyat is discharging through Vyzhevskiyi floodgate, for water feeding of Dnepro-Bug Canal (DBC), which is situated at the territory of the Republic of Belarus, as a result in low- water seasons Upper Pripyat could have the deficit of water to satisfy good ecological state of natural water body. On the another hand the pass of flood water of Upper Pripyat thought Vyzhevskiyi floodgate for reducing flood areas at the territory of Ukraine, have a negative influence upon technical state of Dnepro-Bug constructions, environment in the Republic of Belarus by way of flooding. Therefore the problem of water regime management of Upper Pripyat is a transboundary problem. Dniepro-Bug Canal (DBC) Beloozerskaya water feed system of DBC Republic of Belarus Ukraine
Project goals The objective of the project is to support sustainable management of shared water resources in the upper Pripyat basin. This will be done through developing, adopting, agreeing Operation Rules Beloozerskaya water-feed system of the Dniepro-Bug Canal BY UA
Lead agency and the project manager UNEP ROE / GRID-Arendal Nickolai Denisov Partner agencies UNDP, OSCE, UNECE Local partners Belarus Ministry of Transportation, including the Dnieper-Bug Waterway enterprise (Pinsk) Ukraine’s State Water Committee, including the Volyn Regional Department Ministries of Environment Protection (both countries) Research Institutes: Central Research Institute for Complex Use of Water Resources (CRICUWR, Minsk, Belarus), Institute of Water Economy (Kiev, Ukraine) Project durationStart: June 2008 End: December 2009
For achievement of the goal, the joint belarussian-ukrainian complex hydrological and hydroecological investigations of Upper Pripyat and Beloozerskaya water feed system of DBC were organized and carried out (in Summer 2008 and in Spring 2009), water-balance calculations and anthropogenic assessment for different hydrological conditions and different operating modes of Vyzhevskiyi floodgate were carried out.
Flow distribution at the Vyzhevsky floodgate in low water periods. Current state (before project activity). BWFS DBC Pripyat River
The points of hydraulic and hydrological estimations during Spring 09 expedition (high water conditions) Beloe Lake Volyanskoe Lake Svyatoe Lake Pripyat River Vyzhevsky Canal Khabarishensky Canal
Recommendations on flow distribution of the Pripyat River in Verchnepripjatsky waterworks facility were suggested on the base of the minimum feasible discharge (MFD) which can provide the environmental functioning of the river and flow forming discharge. River Pripyat upstream of BWFS of DBC River Pripyat downstream of BWFS On the hydrological feasibilities MFD constituted 1.0 m 3 /sec, according to the hydraulic feasibilities on the required conditions of the flowage MFD constitutes 1.7 m 3 /sec, flow forming discharge constitutes 6.0 m 3 /sec. MFD=1.0 m 3 /sec and MFD=1.7 m 3 /sec are represented in the Recommendations.

Digital relief model of BWFS DBC
Flooded zones of the territory were developed the water levels of Beloe Lake are 146, ,6 m Beloe Lake Volyanskoe Lake Svyatoe Lake Beloozersky Canal Vyzhevsky Canal Khabarishensky Canal
Flooded zones of the territory the water levels of Beloe Lake are 146, ,2 m ∆S= hectares ∆V=4.15 million m 3 The recommended range of water levels change in the Lakes of Beloozerskaya water feed system is 0.4 m (from – m of Beloe Lake). The range is defined on the grounds of projects cameral activities using digital relief model, field hydrological Investigations and water balance calculations.
