Efforts to remove pollutants in Upper Isetsky unsuccessful
MUP's Water Canal treatment program was designed to sort out the trichlorethylene introduced to the pond's ecosystem from Western Railway's industrial operations nearby, Ekburg.ru reports.
As of March 31, the concentration of the pollutant was reduced to 0.0024 milligrams per cubic decimeter, several times less than the standard ratio allowed by the Russian government.
However, most residents of the area are still receiving drinking and cooking water from uncontaminated reservoirs located closer to Yekaterinburg's city center, according to Ekburg.ru.
Regional and national health officials are investigating other methods of purifying the Upper Isetsky pond reservoir before introducing its water back into the regional supply.
