Within the area of many rivers belonging to the basins of the Kama, Tobol and Ural. Because here, basically, their upper reaches, they are shallow.
Rivers longer than 10 km there are in the field 348, their total length is 10235 km
The length of 100 km are only 17 rivers. And only 7 rivers Miass, UY, Ural, ay, Ufa, Uvelka, gumbeyka – are in the range of length greater than 200 km.
Most of the territory of the region belongs to the basin of the Ob. To the East, at Tobol and its left tributaries, flows the majority of rivers of Chelyabinsk in the Urals: Ekaterinburg, the Techa river, Miass, Uvelka, UY, toguzak, Kartaly-Ayat, sintashty and others.
Miass river originates on the Eastern slope of the ridge. Nurali, flows first between the mountains to the North, and then, turning to the East at the Karabash, crosses the forest-steppe zone and flows into the Iset river at the boundaries of the area. Its length within the area is 384 km (out of 658 total length).
Regulators of flow of Miass are Argazi and Shershnevskoye reservoir. Currently 70-80% of the water of the river Miass flows through the pipelines and only 20-30% flows through the natural course. Four-fifths water the city pays to the needs of the national Continue reading
In Achinsk the acres of land flooded alkali. At the Alumina refinery has been a rush of slurry storage. Local residents fear that waste from the company will fall into the Chulym river, which supplies the city with water. The place was visited by Svetlana Ovsyannikova.
A few days ago this rusty lake was not here. With one coast-road, with another &ndash Achinsk alumina refinery. The accident occurred on one of the slurry storage devices. Hydraulic structure were simply broken.
From here to highway M-53 just a few meters. And, I guess, if it started snowing hard, the road is the rusty lake-no one could not notice.
It all happened a week ago. At night on the first of February. Locals claim: through the mountain of waste sludge from the alumina plant then flowed a great river. Now everything is frozen. And most people fear for the Chulym river. It is very close. In fact, supplies water to the entire city.
– Here now all the fish are gone from the Chulym river, went above, where the cleaner.
I have long been a danger all around. Cool – not cool, and the accident occurred.
– There will be a flood, it’s all in the river will go straight into the Chulym, my friends.
As explained at the enterprise, burst pipe, which on the surface takes the production waste: sludge and alkaline solution. While Continue reading
The Hydrogeological setting of the karst massif of rocks determines the intensity of modern cestovanie. Gipsoangidritovye for the array characterized by the distribution of karst waters in the upper zone. The maximum-flooding zone pridelines. Under the upper Permian rocks sharply decreases. Water pressure, fissure-stratal and fissure-karst, the absolute level of 20-70 m. In terms of nutrition, movement and discharge of karst water area belongs to type III hydrodynamic sulphate karst (Gorbunov, 1979), which is characterized by the preferential development zones vertical, transition and horizontal circulation of karst waters. The thickness of the zone of intensive water exchange of 30-50 m in the raised area of the white sea-Kuloyskoe plateau up to 100 m. over developed in the watershed areas of the absorption apparatus field of sinkholes, surface waters get deep into the array, where the concentrated form of underground streams – a karst-paleogeodynamics system. The path of the underground transit from the site of absorption to areas of discharge of short duration – to 10-15 km, normal discharge in the form of descending or ascending sources in the estuarine areas of caves, marked by massive and subaqueous karst water outputs. Groundwater salinity mainly sulphate-calcium, high water Continue reading
