The paper gives the results of investigation of the water-vapor absorption spectrum in the range of 586.9-596.6 nm. In the given range, 282 water-vapor absorption lines were recorded and were identified as belonging to the bands 4ν1 + ν3, 3ν1 + 2ν2 + ν3, 3ν1 + 2ν3. Theoretical justification of the technique for interpreting the observed spectrum was made. The values of more vibration-rotation levels of energy were determined: for state (401) up to J = 10, for state (321) up to J = 10, and for state (302) up to J = 8. The rotational and centrifugal constants of the reduced Watson's Hamiltonian for the vibrational states (401), (321), (302), and (222) and constants of Fermi resonance (401)-(321), (302)-(222), and Coriolis resonance between the states (401), (321), and (302), (222) were determined.
