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
Individual tours in Lake Titicaca (Peru) from the tourist company Turbinaria. An unforgettable holiday from a leading tour operator
The charm and beauty of lake Titicaca is amazing!
Lake Titicaca – the birthplace of the highly cultured civilization of the Incas.

Baikal and freshwater
Where is the largest freshwater supply in the world? Most are familiar with the geography and ecology of the people will answer without hesitation — the largest source of fresh water in the world is lake Baikal . located in Eastern Siberia.
How much fresh water in Baikal? In the lake Baikal fresh water is contained in very large quantities. The volume of fresh water of lake Baikal is so large, accounting for about twenty percent from the total of all fresh water reserves in the world (up to twenty km3). If to take separately only the Russian reserves of fresh water, lake Baikal is up to 90 percent of their number.
The origin of lake Baikal.
Baikal is not only the deepest lake on the planet (the maximum depth is more than 1,600 meters ), but also the oldest. Estimated age of lake Baikal is estimated at more than twenty million years.
It is considered that lake Baikal was formed in the Wake of a major tectonic fault in the process of continental movements. This theory is confirmed by the fact that volcanic activity in the lake continues to this day — occasionally there are earthquakes in the vicinity of lake Baikal.
Why is the Baikal water is fresh?
The filling of lake Baikal water was due to surface water. Those rivers that flow into lake Baikal, very slightly saline, Continue reading
