For example, young researchers concluded that the placement of reserves and protected areas of the rivers is the most efficient, economically effective mean. Among the cheapest measures is the awareness-campaign work. Given the current disastrous state of water resources, young researchers propose original technical solutions for efficient use of water and methods of treatment.
