Now the expert group is collecting technological solutions to eliminate the negative impact of waste accumulated as a result of the enterprise.

Now, preparations are underway for the comprehensive development of Baikalsk, including the territory of the industrial site, as well as its inclusion in the restoration project. According to the press service of the regional government, three main stages of work have already been identified: before the beginning of the spring flood, it is necessary to carry out deprotection to prevent the contents of storage cards from entering Baikal, and then determine the technology for utilizing accumulated waste. After that, with the involvement of local residents, the question of what to do in the future on the territory of the former industrial site will be decided.
