ULAN-UDE, October 7 (Itar-Tass) — As many as 16 unauthorized dump yards on an overall area of five hectares were liquidated in the vicinity of Lake Baikal in the past month, the press service of the administration of the Russian consumer rights protection authority (Rospotrebnadzor) in the republic of Buryatia said on Friday.
Rospotrebnadzor inspectors revealed four unauthorised dumps on an area of 7,000 square meters in the very vicinity on Lake Baikal in the Barguzinsky district. Garbage and litter were heaped along motorways and in nearby forests, including in fire lanes cut in taiga to prevent the spreading of fires. Thus, more than 2,000 cubic meters of garbage were found stocked in an unsanctioned dump in one such lane.
Many such dumps were found in Buryatia’s Kabansky district also in close vicinity to Lake Baikal. Five of nine unauthorised dumps were located on lands of the forestry fund, and four – in settlements.
“In all, a total of 26 unauthorized dump yards on an overall area of more than 16 hectares were exposed in Buryatia in a month’s period. Twenty-five administrative cases were opened. Administrative checks are underway. The sum of fines for violating Russian environmental laws exceeded 40,000 roubles,” the press service said.
