Oil products were found in sea water off the coast of Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky. Local residents and guests of Kamchatka are asked not to visit Khalaktyrsky beach.

According to the press service of the government of the Kamchatka Territory, yesterday there were messages on social networks about water pollution in the bay. The regional hydrometeorological service promptly took samples.

According to the head of the regional Ministry of Natural Resources Alexei Kumarkov, it is known that in one of the samples an excess of almost four times was found for oil products, in two samples - a double excess for phenols. On the walls of the glass sample containers, a bright yellow oily substance, similar to industrial oil, remained. Experts will accurately determine the substance by October 2.

Kumarkov said that the polluted sea waters of the Khalaktyr beach pose a threat to human health. He recommended refraining from contact with water. Specialists will conduct repeated analyzes.
