In Yakutia, LLC “Basalt Materials Plant” dumped pollutants into the Lena River. Specialists found traces of a dried stream from the side of the enterprise. The substandard products of the basalt plant and production waste from the mineral wool product line are stored nearby.

According to the press service of the regional Ministry of Ecology, in a sample of water taken in the Lena River at 500 m below the plant, the suspended solids content was found to be 1,8 times and formaldehyde 9,7 times higher for fishery water bodies. The drinking and drinking standard for formaldehyde content has been exceeded 1,9 times. Background indicators for formaldehyde content are exceeded 2,1 times.

In the water taken at 1 000 m above the plant, an excess of the fisheries standard by 4,7 times was also established, but the value is within the limits of the household-drinking standard. Now the check is being carried out by the prosecutor's office of the Khangalassky ulus of Yakutia and the local administration of the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare.
