Phenol in the waters of the Amur River will not top the maximum permissible limit even in case of the most unfavourable developments
Phenol in the waters of the Amur River will not top the maximum permissible limit even in case of the most unfavourable developments, Itar-Tass was told at the Press Service of the Russian Ministry for Emergency Situations on Friday. “The pollution level in Amur water was evaluated by specialists of the Antistikhia (Anti-Calamities) Centre, which predicts various emergency situations on the basis of the possessed data and analyses results,” ministry officials explained. “Its evaluation gives grounds for the presumption that phenol concentration in the Amur River, which flows along Russia’s border with China, will not top the maximum permissible ten parts by weight level of concentration,” they added. The maximum permissible concentration in the area of Khabarovsk is expected to be within the seven per cent level. “Given an unfavourable scenario, the maximum pollution level will last from 10 to14 days,” experts believe. In their opinion, “more exact evaluations and quantitative forecasts of the situation in the Amur River basin will be possible only after information is received on November 27-28 on the composition and concentration of pollutions in the Sungari River in the place where it reaches the border of Russia”. Officials of the Press Service also said that eight inhabited localities of the Jewish Autonomous Region and thirty – in Khabarovsk Territory may find themselves to be within the zone of pollution. They have a total population of about one million people. “The preliminary results of situation modelling show that polluted water may reach the Jewish Autonomous Region by November 27-28, the Khabarovsk water intake – by December 1-3, and Komsomolsk-on-Amur – by December 7-10. “The possible composition of the toxic substances contained in the water has already been analysed. The Amur Basin Directorate and Rospotrebnadzor (Inspection) are now evaluating the possible dangers,” ministry officials stated. The Far Eastern Regional Centre of the Ministry for Emergency Situations has drawn up a plan of actions to prevent and do away with the possible consequences of Amur’s pollution and to supply the population with water from safe sources. Officials of the ministry noted that no excess benzene or phenol, topping the maximum permissible limit, were found in the Amur River next to the inhabited locality of Leninskoye.
