In Yakutia, the Ministry of Ecology is checking information on the pollution of the Sentachan and Adycha rivers in the Verkhoyansk ulus. According to a local resident, muddy water entered the reservoir directly on top of the ice. The nearest settlements are located 310-350 km downstream.

According to the press service of the department, two license areas have been allocated in the area of ​​the upper reaches of the Sentachan stream. At one of them, Wolfram LLC is engaged in geological exploration, the site is promising for placer gold, but work is not being carried out here now. The second site for the extraction of gold-antimony ores is being developed by Zvezda JSC.

Presumably, the river was polluted after the break of the sump dam. As noted in JSC "Zvezda", because of the intense melting of snow, the water passed through the soil tank to regulate one hundred streams. These suspended solids got into the river.

The company received a plan of measures to eliminate violations, and the Verkhoyansk Inspectorate of Environmental Supervision initiated administrative proceedings regarding the concealment of information and violation of the requirements for the protection of water bodies. Information about the check was also passed on to the prosecutor's office and Rosrybolovstvo and Rospotrebnadzor. Departure of specialists is not yet possible due to the lack of a road.
