The research results have marked a low value of the self-purification capacity for Beleu Lake water, between 0.12 and 0.19, which is of 1.2-2 times smaller than the one from Prut River (0.25), correlating positively with the values of BOD5, COD-Cr and the time of biochemical oxidation of ammonium ions. The evolution of stage NH4+(NH3) → NO2- in the process of nitrification in lake water in November 2014 takes place about 25 days and the process NO2- → NO3- is more than 35 days, the duration about 2 times higher than in lake water stages from 2015 and 2.8-3.0 times higher than that of the model with water from Prut River.
