Introduction. The use of the electrochemical analytical system “IHP Analyzer” allows the environmental monitoring the conditions of drinking water and water objects, assessing and predicting the risks of toxicants on human health and the environment.

The purpose of the paper is to propose information technology for rapid determining chemical elements concentrations and for assessing the risk of their impact on the biosphere.

Methods. Pulse methods of chronopotentiometry, chronoionometric method of direct potentiometry and methods of assessment of ecological risk of influence of chemicals on environment are used for measurement of concentrations.

Methods. Pulse chronopotentiometry methods, direct chronoionometric potentiometry methods and methods for assessing the risk of human health deterioration in the case of consumption of drinking water of different quality are used.

Results. Developed information technology that uses machine learning techniques, cloud technologies and intelligent models to study the mass of chemical elements additives. The application of IT allows the results of one measurement to quickly determine the elements concentrations  in the water objects by comparing signals and assess the impact risks of chemicals to human health when consuming contaminated drinking water.

Results. Developed information technology with machine learning, cloud technologies and the use of intelligent models of the mass of chemical element additives, that allows the results of one measurement to quickly determine the elements concentrations in the water objects by comparing signals and assess the impact risks of chemicals to human health when consuming contaminated drinking water.

Conclusions. Advanced analytical system “Analyzer SCP” allows you to quickly measure the concentration of 12 chemicals (Pb, Cd, Cu, Zn, Se, I, K, Na, Ca, F, NO3, NH4) in water bodies on site and eight more toxic elements (Hg, As, Sn, Ni, Co, Mn, Cr, Fe) in the laboratory, which allowed to quickly and fully determine the environmental quality of drinking water and the environment. The use of ion-selective and measuring electrodes based on precious metals increases the environmental friendliness and speed of research. The application of risk assessment methodology for the chemical elements impact on humans and the environment allows to predict the consequences and occurrence of diseases with long-term consumption of contaminated drinking water or the possibility of using water bodies for irrigation and fish farming.

Keywords: concentration, ecological risk, ion-selective electrode, inversion chronopotentiometry, drinking water.
