The paper considers the possibility of determining the permanent and random sources of pollution of the environment by the level of pollution of liquid atmospheric precipitation. The problems of liquid atmospheric precipitation testing and monitoring of pollution concentration during precipitation are outlined. The expediency of developing of a portable system that allows collecting samples of liquid atmospheric precipitation in autonomous modes at different time intervals and periods of rainfall, regardless of the place of its installation, is substantiated. The design features of the electric and mechanical parts of the device, as well as the algorithm of their work, are described. The results of modeling and checking of the working capacity of the portable device, which determine the total mass flow of water, are described.
