The city of Khabarovsk braces itself to grapple with an ecological menace
The city of Khabarovsk braces itself to grapple with an ecological menace: emergency regulations are to be announced as soon as toxic chemicals from the Sungari (Songhua) River reach the Amur (Heilung Chiang) River. The Far Eastern regional centre of the Russian Ministry for Emergencies, the Khabarovsk Territory commmission for emergencies, and the Territorial department of the Rosgidromet (Russian Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Envirnonmental Monitoring) forecast that the polluted water slick will approach the Amur not earlier than December 8-10. The slick is expected to reach Khabarovsk three days after that. The river situation monitoring, and water samples taken at various points, including those in the zone of the Sungari river mouth, indicate that no changes have come about in the natural background of the river. The city council's press service has announced, "It is possible to use cold and heated water for household needs without limitations". A reserve amount of drinking water has been stored up to meet the needs for water if the cold water supply is temporarily cut off. In that case, it has been decided to bring water as a priority to hospitals, kindergartens, boarding schools, bakeries, and residential communities.
