The legal framework for the functioning of the Committee constitutes the Water Law, no 272 of December 23, 2011, implemented on October 26, 2013, art.11, and the borders of the Răut hydrographic sub-basin are established by the Government Decision no. 775 of October 4, 2013 regarding the boundaries of the basin and sub-basin districts and the special maps in which they are determined. According to the legend in annex no.2 to the decision in question the surface of the sub-basin Raut, nominated under no. 20 constitutes 7782.94 km2.
The Răut Sub-Basin Committee is an advisory structure, independent in the exercise of the tasks established by the Regulation approved at the constitution meeting, empowered with competences to participate in the activities of efficient water resources management within the perimeter of the Răut river basin and under the conditions of the existing legal framework.
For the proper development of the competences it is necessary to know what the situation in the basin is, to highlight the priorities for solving the ecological problems created in the basin, as well as the planning of the committee's activity during the reference period. Obviously, under such conditions, there is also the need to develop a summary report on the ecological situation in each locality located in the sub-basin. Thus, in 2017, a Report was prepared on the socio-ecological situation in the sub-basin of the Răut river.
This activity involved, to a large extent, the rayon environmental authorities, partially the health authorities and the rayon councils.
