The quality of water in the rivers of the Khabarovsk Territory has improved

The government of the Khabarovsk Territory hosted a meeting of the coordinating council under the governor on state environmental monitoring. The participants discussed the results of the Russian-Chinese transboundary monitoring of water quality in the Amur and Ussuri rivers in 2014. Deputy Regional Minister of Natural Resources Viktor Bardyuk said that laboratory studies have revealed improvements in all key indicators.

According to the Deputy Minister, this trend has been observed over the past three years. During this period, the water quality in the Amur improved from the 4th class of pollution to the 3rd, in Ussuri - from the 3rd class to the 2nd. According to the press service of the governor and the regional government, there are no pathogenic viruses in the rivers, and a ban on swimming has not been introduced for several years in a row. The quality of the fish (one of the key indicators) fully meets the sanitary and hygienic requirements.

“Over the past 10 years, the volume of harmful emissions from the PRC has decreased significantly. Whole classes of pollutants have disappeared, - said Viktor Bardyuk. - Serious measures are being taken on the territory of the Khabarovsk Territory. Waste treatment facilities were commissioned in the village of Mirnoye, Khabarovsk region, and the village of Snezhny, Komsomolsk region. They are being reconstructed in Khabarovsk, and in Komsomolsk-on-Amur this work is almost completed. "
