In the press, Internet space and other mass media of the Transcarpathian region, the question of the expediency or the inexpediency of the harmful environmental impact on the construction of wind power plants in the Borzhava Valley has been widely debated recently. First of all, it should be noted that the intention of constructing such objects follows from the highest wind power potential of the Carpathian mountain regions in Ukraine, the high specific power of wind energy at a particular time and its total amount at different times (month, season, year), in particular average speed wind and boundary characteristics of wind power plants (the minimum and maximum speed at which the generator of wind turbines can work). This is that which determines the choice of investors for the construction of wind power plants in the Borzhava Valley.
Of course, the construction of any objects leads to one or another impact on the environment in general, and on hydrogeological and geoecological conditions in particular. However, how high is this influence, or does it lead to risks of violations of groundwater formation conditions and the negative changes in the chemical composition of underground and surface waters, is the purpose of this article.
