The article gives a brief description of water bodies in the Ordzhonikidze district and describes the hydrography of the Pravaya Sarala river near the village of Priiskovaya. The objects of our study were the small streams that form the Pravaya Sarala. The research involved measurements and calculations of the parameters of the Central and the Lake tributaries. The article features the results of the measurements and their comparison, made with the help of generally accepted methods. The result was that the Lake tributary exceeds the Central one in all respects. Despite the fact that the slope of the Central tributary is greater than that of the Lake tributary, the average fl rate of the former is lower. It may be associated with the shallowness of some in parts of the Central tributary: the roughness and unevenness of the bottom of the riverbed with its boulders slow the movement of the water. According to the mountain rivers classifi the waterways in question refer to the category of small mountain rivers.
