Tests of the water in the Amur River have discovered no benzene or other toxic pollution
Tests of the water in the Amur River 20 kilometres downstream the site where the Sungari (Songhua) River flows into the Amur have discovered no benzene or other toxic pollution, the press service of the Jewish Autonomous Region’s department for emergencies told Itar-Tass. Water is taken for tests from several places of the Amur six times a day, the press service said. The sanitary and epidemiological service also conducts tests together with the emergencies department's specialists. According to the regional commission on emergencies, the Sungari water polluted with harmful substances from the Chinese chemical plant, where an explosion caused harmful discharges, can reach the Russian part of the Amur near the district centre of Leninskoye on November 27-28. The Jewish Autonomous Region's Governor Nikolai Volkov cited it during the commission meeting on Thursday. In connection with the pollution threat, fishermen are banned from coming onto the Amur ice, and police have blocked the access roads to the river. Residents in settlements located near the river are warned about the danger of using Amur water and eating fish form the river.
