Read in №11 of 2020 year "General Provisions on the Development of Regional Programs for Ensuring Safety of Hydraulic Structures"

13 ноя 2020


Ensuring safety on the territory of the subject of the Russian Federation is a key aspect, including  implementation of measures to ensure safety of the technogenic environment, which includes hydraulic structures, as well as hydraulic structures that do not have an owner or the owner of which is unknown or whose ownership rights were refused (ownerless hydraulic structures). Development and implementation of preventive measures to ensure safety of the technogenic environment contribute to the prevention of emergencies and the development of an algorithm for eliminating their consequences.
Article 5 of Federal law № 117-FZ of July 21, 1997 «On safety of hydraulic structures» establishes the powers of the executive authorities of the subjects of the Russian Federation in the field of safety of hydraulic structures, one of which is the authority to develop and implement regional programs to ensure safety of hydraulic structures, including ownerless hydraulic structures.
Despite the twenty third year period of validity for this federal law, most subjects of the Russian Federation do not have regional programs of ensuring  safety of hydraulic structures, including ownerless hydraulic structures (for ownerless hydraulic structures, such a norm was introduced in 2013). In this case, the executive authorities of the subjects of the Russian Federation refer to the norm of p. 4 of Art. 25 of the Water Code of the Russian Federation, in accordance with which the programs of the subjects of the Russian Federation for the use and protection of water bodies or their parts located on the territories of the subjects of the Russian Federation were developed, approved and are being implemented.
The absence in the subject of the Russian Federation of an approved regional program for ensuring safety of hydraulic structures creates the risk of occurrence of an emergency.
