The paper considers the water-resource potential of the Chechen Republic, which is represented by the Basin of the Terek River. Significant changes in the hydrochemical regime of the Sunzha River, which are a consequence of increased economic pressure, which can lead, if a set of measures to monitor the water bodies of the Chechen Republic is not adopted, to irreversible changes not only in water bodies, but also in the landscape complex as a whole. Long-term studies have made it possible to assess the quality of water masses of the Sunzha River, to determine the characteristic trends in pollution of water bodies. The ever-increasing demand for clean fresh water resources as a water supply to the population with clean drinking water and water-consuming sectors of the economy has determined the relevance of the work. The purpose of this research is to analyze the current state of water bodies in the Chechen Republic as a result of exposure to the main pollutants.

Key words: Chechen Republic, hydrological network, anthropogenic impact, environmental monitoring, main pollutants, water bodies
