WATER FOR CHELYABINSK, BUT NOT FOR MINING!
"Appeal to the Governor of Chelyabinsk region A. L. Texler
After reviewing the proposed work plan of the coordination Council under the Governor of Chelyabinsk region on environmental issues to 2019-2020, p. 36 guided by the Provisions I propose to include for consideration in an extraordinary manner the issue of sustainable water supply in the Chelyabinsk industrial region.
The problematics of this issue is that currently, because of unnatural circumstances issued by JSC "GOK Tominskiy" permissions to extraction of water from the Miass river upstream of Sosnovsky intake MUP "POVV" put at risk the sustainability of the water supply for the whole of the Chelyabinsk industrial region (for production needs Tominsk GOK has allocated about 40 000 000 m3/year, despite the fact that at present the Chelyabinsk consumes 160 000 000 m3/year, the 4th largest industrial consumer (CMP, CTP, CHEMK and South-Ural Directorate for teplovodosnabzhenie together consumed from 01.01.2013 to 31.12.2013 total 8 459 444 m3 (see the Decision of the Chelyabinsk city Duma on 17.02.2015, No. 6/16))
However, it is noted that the draft master plan of Chelyabinsk 2019., the city's population by 2040, the ninth year may increase to 1 314 000 people (from the current 1 202 371 people) the norm of water consumption 500L/day/person, the necessary amount of water should be 239 805 000 m3/year. This amount of water presently there, the transfer of water from the river Ufa may not take place due to the fact that in the city of Ufa may experience problems with sustainable water supply."
