The cost of work on the elimination of environmental damage in the city of Usolye-Siberian in the Irkutsk region may be about two billion rubles. Experts of Rosprirodnadzor are sure of this.

Money is needed to work on the neutralization of mercury, to solve problems with the disposal of chemicals. In addition, it is impossible to prevent the ingress of waste oil into the Angara - the company produced a brine. Now more than 100 thousand cubic meters of oil products are left in the wells, writes RIA News".
