The reason was the results of the study of these reservoirs. Received data cause a shock from the experts: the thickness of bottom sediments in the main drinking water source of cities in some places reaches 3.8 meters. To bring the population taking to the water to gostovskaya norms in such conditions becomes increasingly difficult. In the Ministry of environment are sure to trouble will not come. "FederalPress" was apprised of the situation.

All this information is transferred to the environmental Prosecutor's office of the region.
They also found that in the river Miass thickness of bottom sediments in the surveyed area ranges from 1.6 to 2.3 meters. At the Shershnevskoye reservoir the amount of sludge on the bottom near the dam does not exceed one meter, in the upper reaches 1.6 meters, and near the village of Sosnovka reaches 3.8 meters. The Ministry noted that there are facilities MUP "POVV", which deals with water abstraction, purification and supply drinking water to residents of Chelyabinsk."

The results of ofshornykh permission for water abstraction from the river Miass above Shershenevsky water storage in these conditions is the real crime against Chelyabinsk, the city and our state as a whole.
