The article presents the autonomous hydrometeorological station for organizing networks of monitoring the hydrological conditions in water bodies and collecting the related information, such as meteorological, hydrophysical, etc. The station showed high autonomy and accuracy in measuring water level in a water body. It also has an integrated GSM module for remote data transmission. It was successfully tested during a trial installation on the Slyudyanka River (Lake Baikal basin) in the autumn of 2020, which allowed us to characterize the behaviour of the main hydrological parameters of the watercourse.
