The administration of the Khabarovsk region has been taking maximum possible measures to avert an ecological catastrophe
The administration of the Khabarovsk region has been taking maximum possible measures to avert an ecological catastrophe, Deputy Head of the Federal Agency for Supervision of the Environment Oleg Mitvol told Tass on Monday. Widening the closing gap in a local dike down the Pemsenskaya water stream near Khabarovsk is one of them, Mitvol said. Water samples taken form the Pemsensakaya stream showed an excess of benzole concentration, Mitvol said, adding it was a sign that problems caused by the contaminated Sungari were looming ahead. “We have got the evidence of contamination at an early stage,” he warned. Additional purification measures will be taken in water collectors down the Amur river since Tuesday, such as using activated charcoal which is the most effective absorbent, Mitvol said. He urged the population to abide by the recommendations given by the Commission for emergency situations. In a few days' time the contaminated spill will reach the city and the commission will take the planned measures, including cutting cold water supply when the concentration of the pollutants reaches its peak, Mitvol said. The city is prepared for that, he stressed. Drinking water reserves have been created, and routes for deliveries of drinking water to residential areas and other facilities have been specified. Cold water soppy is hoped to be cut off no longer than forty-eight hours, Mitvol said
