300 Tons of Oil Products Spilled on Angara River

About 300 tons of oil products, and not 44 tons as it has been reported before, was spilled to the Angara river on April 25 from the local pipeline of Russian Federal State Reserves Agency’s (Rosrezerv) Pribaikalye combine as a result of an illegal tapping, the Irkutsk Region’s government reported with reference to governor Dmitry Mezentsev.

At present, the specialists continue to clean up the oil products in the waters of the Angara.

“Prompt mitigation of consequences of the environmental disaster connected with over 300 tons of diesel fuel getting into the Angara due to the illegal tapping into the oil pipeline in the town of Usolye-Sibirskoye, would be impossible without understanding the complexness of the situation on the part of the local residents”, — the government report says.

As it has been reported earlier, the Ministry of the Russian Federation for Civil Defense, Emergency Management and Natural Disasters Response and the Public Prosecutor’s Office are to check on Russian Federal State Reserves Agency’s (Rosrezerv) Pribaikalye, where the petroleum products leak occurred. This also concerns Usolieximprom LDT. According to the information from the Public Prosecutor’s office, the petroleum products were flowing into the river from the storm-overflow sewers belonging to this company. It is on the crossing of the oil pipeline and the sewer that the illegal tapping was later discovered.

This week Rosprirodnadzor promises to announce the amount of damage caused to the environment as a result of petroleum products leak into the river.

After petroleum products were discovered in the river, the water supply in the town of Cheremkhovo of the Irkutsk region was stopped, the schools and kindergartens were closed. The central water supply in Cheremkhovo was resumed on May 1.

As of Wednesday May 2 the schools resumed their functioning, the kindergartens are still closed.
