Specialists on Thursday found no traces of nitrobenzene in water samples taken in the Amur River
Specialists on Thursday found no traces of nitrobenzene in water samples taken in the Amur River near the Bogorodskoye settlement 240 kilometres from the Tatar Strait, the regional emergencies department said on Friday. Experts had obtained similar results during the previous days. However, hydrologists so far do not hurry to make conclusions about the total dilution of the toxic slick from the Sungari River by the Amur River waters. “The group of specialists flew on Friday morning on board a helicopter to the area of Tsimmermanovka settlement to take samples in the river higher than Bogorodskoye,” head of the Far Eastern hydrometeorology department Alexander Gavrilov told Itar-Tass. According to him, the results of the analyses will be known on Saturday. “If chemicals are spotted higher in the river course it means that the polluted waters have not come to Bogorodskoye,” he said. In the words of Gavrilov, “This variant is unlikely, but is not ruled out.” According to estimates of the Far East scientists, the situation in the Amur River basin remains alarming. After a large-scale examination of bottom sediments and ice with frozen toxic agents the scientists are by April 10 to give a forecast of the dynamics of the water quality change during the spring period, as well as to answer one of the most painful questions – what has happened to fish affected by chemicals. Nitrobenzene compounds settled in the river bottom layers, in the wintering fish holes and in the deep inevitably accumulate in fish fat tissue poisoning it. Fishing has been banned in the Khabarovsk territory and Jewish Autonomous Area in the Amur River. Police, fishery supervision officers and other agencies are patrolling the river. The quality of fish is under tough control in the retail sector.
