The article presents an analysis of water monitoring organization in the Sumy region. The reform of water resources management has placed the main burden on the implementation of the state water policy and ensuring the proper ecological condition of the water basin at the regional level of management. The European approach in the field of water resources management pays attention to water monitoring, which is an integral part of the state system of environmental monitoring in Ukraine. An analysis of implementation the basin principle in the region had been conducted. There are two sub-basins in the region: Desna Sub-Basin and Middle Dnieper Sub-Basin. Within the Desna sub-basin 121 massifs of surface waters have been identified, within the middle Dnieper sub-basin 230 massifs have been identified. The analysis of monitoring data on the state of surface waters, on the organization of monitoring of transboundary watercourses is carried out. The study found that farms have a significant impact on the condition of rivers. Due to the aggravation of the political situation, monitoring of transboundary watercourses is carried out only on the territory of Ukraine. The beginning of the introduction of a new approach to monitoring in Sumy region lays the foundations for the accumulation, systematization of data on the state of surface water bodies with the subsequent possibility of analyzing the existing situation with effective management decisions to achieve "good" ecological status of river basins.
