The paper deals with the impact of the Mingachevir reservoir on the seismicity of the adjacent block of the Middle Kura depression. After the filling of the reservoir there occurred re-distribution of the re-leased energy expressed in the change of intensity and number of earthquakes as well as their location in plan and at depth. There has been determined relation of earthquakes in time with periods of maximum filling of the reservoir and acute disposal of water.
