Volume of Waste near Lake Baikal Multiplied 7 Times over 9 Years

The mass of waste in the Baikal Natural Site made 104,3 million tons in 2014, which is seven times more than in 2006.

      "The increased volume of waste observed in 2013 was related to increase of coal mining at the Coal Mine, LLC in the Republic of Buryatia and at the Tungus Cut, JSC in the Trans-Baikal Territory,  the RF Ministry of Natural Resources reported.

      Presently  only 9 out of 17 waste disposal grounds in Irkutsk conform to the established ecological requirements. The arrangement of the other six grounds is provided by the Federal Target Program on Protection of Lake Baikal for 2012-2020. Buryatia has 29 waste disposal grounds that are up to ecological standards. However, according to the minister, the same number of grounds more have to be introduced there.
