According to the researches, the water level in the Goryn River (above the Baltic Sea level) fluctuated within a month from 192.49 m to 192.70 m in September, 2019 (the minimum value is 192.49 m; the maximum value is 192.71 m; the average is 192.58 m):

In September 2019, the temperature of water in the Goryn River varied from 22.7°С to 14.0°С during the month (minimum value is 13.5; maximum value is 22.7; average is 17.6):

In September 2019, the water flow in the Goryn River changed from 4.00 to 8.44 m3/s during the month  (the minimum value was 4.00; the maximum value was 8.44; the average was 5.83):

Note: The calculation  of the flow rate in the Goryn River includes the coefficient taking into account the presence of algae (the calculation is performed according to the appropriate method).

The total flow of the Goryn River amounted to 15.1 million m3 in September 2019 (September 2018 - 15.1 million m3) .

The water level of the reservoir-cooler (at the design level of 203.0 m above the Baltic Sea level)  varied from 201.75 to 201.58 meters during the month in September 2019 (the minimum value is 201.55, the maximum value is 201.75, the average - 201.65):

The mirror area of the cooling pond was 17.525 km2, the volume of water was 92,620 million m3 at the end of the month.

In September 2019, the temperature of the water in the cooling pond varied from 30.1°C to 16.4°C during the month (minimum value is 16.0, maximum value is 30.1, average - 20.5):

The chemical analysis data of water quality in the reservoir-cooler (the pump station of auxiliary water) and in the Goryn River (near the Old Mill, Netishyn) were as follows in September:

Notes: Standard MAC (maximum allowable concentration) is applied for water objects of industrial fishing (the Goryn River pertains to them) - «Rules of superficial water protection».

According to the data of chemical analysis results mentioned above, the water quality of the reservoir-cooler in September was better than the water quality in the Goryn River regarding some coefficients.

According to the data of ambient air composition research, the month maximum one-time concentration of oxide sulfur at the border of the protected sanitary area of KhNPP (in Neteshin) was <0.05 mg/m3 (<10.0 % from MAC), the maximum one-time concentration of oxide nitrogen was <0.020 mg/m3 (<10.0 % from MAC) in September.

Total precipitation was 36.0 mm during September. Based on the research of precipitation composition, pH value was 6.75 units.

The average month air temperature was «+14.9°С» (the maximum daily temperature was «+21.4°С», the minimum daily temperature was «+7.3°С»).
