Expert Says Chinese Companies Keep Polluting Amur River in Russia

Posted by Author on July 28, 2007

Prime-Tass, Russia, July 27, 2007-

KHABAROVSK, July 27 (Prime-Tass) — Chinese companies continue to pollute the Amur River (Called as Heilongjiang River, in northeast China), which is located on the Russian-Chinese border, Alexei Makhinov, deputy director of Russia’s Institute for Aquatic and Environmental Problems, said Friday, ITAR-TASS reported.

The content of volatile phenols in the Amur River is 10% to 20% higher than the maximum allowable concentration, ITAR-TASS reported, citing a spokesman for the environmental protection department of the Khabarovsk Region’s Natural Resources Ministry.

Meanwhile, the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring’s branch in Russia’s Far East has said that it found high levels of arsenic, mercury, cadmium, lead, zinc and copper in the Amur River and the nearby Ussuri River, as cited by ITAR-TASS.

Additionally, the Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Welfare has attributed a current meningitis epidemic in the area to high virus content in the Amur River, ITAR-TASS reported.
