Reclamation of Kozelsky landfill in Kamchatka will be included in the national project

Reclamation of the Kozelsky landfill in Kamchatka will be included in the national project "Ecology". This will allow attracting federal funding for the work.

The decision to include landfill reclamation in the national project was made following the results of extended meetings led by Deputy Prime Minister Victoria Abramchenko. She instructed the regional authorities, together with the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia and the Ministry of Defense, to conduct a rough expert assessment of the cost of the work in the near future.

According to the press service of the regional government, after calculating the cost of landfill reclamation work, a contractor will be determined to deal with this. The Kamchatka authorities asked Rosatom for help in carrying out the work.

Previously, the leakage of toxic chemicals from the Kozelsk and Radyginsky landfills in Kamchatka was considered as one of the causes of the pollution of the Pacific Ocean. However, after several checks, sampling and geodetic surveys this version was excluded... The head of the climatic direction of the Russian Greenpeace Vasily Yablokov stated that reclamation is necessary regardless of research results.

Scientists will continue to study the ecological situation on the coast of Kamchatka, but at the level of the Russian Federation.
