In 2009–2012 we took out a survey of three Moscow small rivers that flow in the industrial zones of Moscow: Nischcenka, Businka and Tarakanovka. One of the goals of our observation was to determine total organic pollution of these rivers and to identify organic compounds that occur there. To achieve our goal we measured parameters such as concentration of petroleum products and extracted organic compounds (EOC) and used such method as IR-spectrometry, HPLC and GC-MS. According to the results of our survey organic pollution of bottom sediments of Moscow urban rivers were caused mostly by petroleum products. Bottom sediments also contain such contaminators as organosilicon compounds, PAH and phtalates. Keywords: urban rivers, bottom sediments, petroleum products, organic pollution.
