ABSTRACT
The water footprint consumption of Bashkortostan Republic (Russian Federation) for 2012 year and the Russian Federation as a whole was calculated in this paper. The calculated water footprint consumption values for 2012 year have been compared with the calculated water footprint consumption values for the period 1996-2005 years. The impact of blue and gray water footprint components on water resources has been defined. The quantitative values of the load on water resources were defined. The results of research can be used for water resources management as an indicator of water use related to consumption.

Keywords: water footprint, consumption, water resources, water use
