The environmental situation in the Amur River remains stable
The environmental situation in the Amur River remains stable, the Far Eastern center of the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry said Monday. Water samples taken from the river December 4 did not show the presence of any chemicals, the ministry said. The toxic spill, which is moving at a speed of about 1-2km/h, is about 320 km (200 miles) away from the estuary of the Songhua River, a tributary of the Amur. The 150-km (93 miles) spill is expected to reach the Amur December 10-12. About 100 metric tons of chemicals, including potentially lethal benzene, spilled into the Songhua River after an accident at a petrochemical plant in northeastern China November 13. The contaminated water is heading toward the Khabarovsk Territory and the Jewish Autonomous Area in the Russian Far East.
