Minsk hosts European Mobility Week
In the period from the 16th to 22nd of September, 2021 the EUROPEAN MOBILITY WEEK is held once again. Each year the campaign is dedicated to topics related to drawing public attention to the problems of excess road transport, and involves the holding of actions, bicycle parades, conferences and events with the participation of different age groups of the population, aimed at popularizing of urban public passenger transport, environmentally friendly modes of transport , hiking, healthy lifestyle and environmental preservation. This year the theme of the European Mobility Week is “Safe and Healthy with Sustainable Mobility”. This year's theme selection pays tribute to the challenges the world is facing during the Covid-19 pandemic. European Mobility Week is an international campaign that takes place every year from 16 to 22 September to encourage European countries to implement and promote sustainable transport policies and to invite people to try alternatives to using a car. The final stage of the week is the Car-Free Day, which is held worldwide on the 22nd of September. This is the seventh time Belarus joins this international campaign, which last year united about 3,000 settlements from more than 50 countries. Last year 85 settlements in Belarus, including Minsk, joined the campaign. This year, within the framework of the week, mobile classes “Car in the city? There is an alternative!”, the preventive alternative activity “Safety Road”, the challenge on Instagram #smart mobility, as well as the campaigns “Cycling to school” and “Cycling to work!”. In addition, it is planned to hold a dialogue platform on the topic “Use of alternative vehicles to the car. Their safe operation”, an ecological seminar “Mobile electric transport - replacing a car", a cinema lecture for students of educational institutions in Minsk “World Car Free Day” in the “Pioner” cinema, a master class on the technique of cycling tourism, a plogging race on the territory of Minsk and a thematic tour of the Museum of Urban Passenger Transport and Production. Also, during the European Mobility Week it is planned to open a club of ecotransport lovers and the "VeloSezd" festival in the park of the 60th anniversary of the Great October Revolution. From the 21th to the 22nd of September Minsk will measure the concentration of pollutants in the air and measure the noise level. Such studies are regularly organized during Mobility Week. The results of the previous years' tests on September, 22 show a positive trend. Every year the difference between noise levels and pollutant concentrations on normal days and on a Car-Free Day becomes more pronounced. Belhydromet specialists traditionally take the most active part in the campaign. Among the main activities are route surveys of the state of atmospheric air in areas with different anthropogenic load: highways with heavy traffic, recreation and recreation areas. Measurements of air pollution are carried out the day before and directly on the Day without a car. The results are compared with the data obtained on the stationary air monitoring network, taking into account the nature of the meteorological conditions. The Belhydromet team calls for supporting the environmental campaign and for at least one day abandon the use of road transport, preferring to walk or travel by public transport!

Information on the hydrometeorological situation in the river basins of the Republic of Belarus, formed in July 2021
In July, the national average air temperature was +22.5°C, which is 4.1°C higher than the climatic norm, the above zero temperature anomaly spread throughout Belarus. During the month, 66.0 mm of precipitation fell on average in the republic, which amounted to 78% of the climatic norm. Precipitation spread over the territory of the country extremely unevenly. Most precipitation in a month fell on the territory of the Brest region - 126% of the climatic norm, the least amount of precipitation (33% of the climatic norm) fell on the territory of the Vitebsk region. During the month, precipitation was mainly of a torrential nature, in some areas the rains reached the criterion of a dangerous phenomenon, as a result of which for a short time on the Western Dvina near the city of Vitebsk and Berezina near the city of Bobruisk, conditions for the operation of river transport improved, on the tributary of the Western Bug, the Lesnaya River near the town of Kamenets, the water level exceeded the mark of water outlet to the floodplain. In July, on the rivers of the country, there was mainly a decline in water levels, as a result of which on the Dnieper near Loyev, Berezina near Svetlogorsk and Sozhe near Gomel, water levels dropped below dangerous low marks limiting navigation on the Berezina tributary, the Sushanka River near e. On dry land, the water level dropped below the mark of water outlet to the floodplain. Unfavorable conditions for the operation of river transport were noted on the navigable sections of the Western Dvina, Neman, Dnieper, Berezina and Sozh. At the end of July, the water content of the Neman, Viliya and Berezina was close to the norm and somewhat less than it; the water content of the Western Dvina, Dnieper, Sozh and Pripyat was significantly less than usual for this time of year. The average water temperature in the rivers in July was 20-26°C, which is 2-5°C higher than usual for this time of the year.

June 2021 ranked 3rd in a ranked series of observations from warmest to coldest since 1945. Daytime temperatures in the first half of the month were mainly within the range of +20 +25°C, in the second half of the month they increased to +30°C and above, and on June 22-25 they exceeded the 35-degree mark in places, which corresponds to the criterion of a dangerous phenomenon. In the third decade of June, an intense heat wave was noted, as a result of which the absolute maximum air temperature for June was updated in most of the territory of Belarus, with the exception of some observation points mainly in the west. During the month, on average, 54.6 mm of precipitation fell in the republic, which amounted to 67% of the climatic norm, but at some points of observation, the amount of precipitation for the month exceeded the norm. The humidification regime was uneven throughout the month. The first and second decades were dry: 40 and 48% of the ten-day norm fell out, respectively. In the third decade, 110% of the ten-day norm fell out. The rains were mostly torrential, accompanied by thunderstorms and hail. In some areas, the rains have reached the criteria for a hazardous phenomenon. In June, on the rivers of the country, there was mainly a decrease in water levels, as a result of which, on the tributary of the Western Bug, the Narev River, the Dnieper near the Loyev city, the Berezina near the Berezino, Sluch and Ptich water entered the channel, and on the Western Dvina near Vitebsk, Dnieper near Mogilev, Zhlobin and Rechitsa, Berezin near Bobruisk, Sozhe near Krichev and Slavgorod, working conditions worsened river transport. In the last five days of the month, precipitation caused an increase in water levels in most of the rivers in the basins of the Western Dvina, Neman, Viliya, Berezina and Sozh, in connection with which, on the tributary of the Berezina, the Sushanka river near the village of Susha, water reached the floodplain. The water content of most rivers in June was close to the usual for this time of year and slightly lower than the norm; the water content of the Berezina and Dnieper near the town of Rechitsa was 30% higher than the norm, and the water content of the Sozh near the town of Gomel was 65% higher. The value of the minimum water level in June on the Lan River near the village of Mokrovo (a tributary of the Pripyat) turned out to be lower than the historical minimum for the period of the summer-autumn dry season. The average monthly water temperature in rivers and reservoirs in June was 18-22°С, which is close to the usual temperature for this time of the year.

World Environment Day
On June 5, the world community annually celebrates World Environment Day. This holiday, like other environmental dates, is held with the aim of drawing public attention to such phenomena as natural disasters, declining biodiversity, new diseases that are the result of our relationship to the environment. Maybe in the course of the daily routine of affairs, problems and their own worries, a person does not notice how his actions cause irreparable harm to the environment. That is why there are such dates - to stop, think and take certain actions to minimize the negative impact on the environment. In Belarus, environmental protection issues are dealt with by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environmental Protection of the Republic of Belarus, which is the ancestor of a large number of environmental initiatives. Belhydromet, as an organization subordinate to the Ministry of Natural Resources, makes a great contribution to the study of environmental problems, as it monitors surface water, atmospheric air, participates in monitoring lands, and also monitors radioactive contamination of the environment. The tasks of Belhydromet are also to ensure the radiation safety of the population, to conduct radiation monitoring as part of the National Environmental Monitoring System in the Republic of Belarus and to carry out operational control and forecasting of the zones of spread of radioactive contamination. Based on the results of the work carried out, the population and government bodies are provided with environmental information and information obtained from the results of monitoring the radioactive contamination of the environment.
