The problems of river basin pollution, caused by the activities of industrial enterprises, especially those in the mining industry, are known globally and require new approaches to quantitative assessment of the man-made impact. The solution to this problem requires the development of fundamentally new systems for monitoring the aquatic environment based on modern information technologies. The paper presents one of the possible solutions based on the Internet of Things and digital twin technologies, which will make it possible not only to continuously assess the current state of the pilot river basin (the Uskat River, one of the most polluted in Kuzbass), but also to forecast and model the required measures to minimize and liquidate the negative impact. The work provides both a functional diagram of creating a modern monitoring system and diagrams of interaction between its individual elements. It is advisable to extend the proposed approach to other industrial regions, which also face the same problems.
