Dangerous Salts and Reagents on Moscow Roads Exceed Norm 12 Times

This winter the use of chemical reagents and salt for cleaning of Moscow roads has exceeded the norm 12 times.
      It threatens destruction of plants and harms the soil. Inhabitants of Moscow will see the consequences in spring.
      The quantity of reagents used for cleaning Moscow roads from snow was so enormous that even during frosts there were puddles in the streets. Calcium chloride, sodium formate and potash chloride make 20 per cent of the soluble salt used to dissolve snow on Moscow roads. The latter is registered as a toxic chemical according to the legislation and cannot be used at the citys territory.
      The new chemical reagents are unsafe for people, because the solution and marble crumb rise into the air and get into the lungs of Muscovites.
