MOSCOW, March 19 (Itar-Tass) — Russian Emergencies Minister Sergei Shoigu demands dangerous water development facilities be put in order as soon as possible ahead of upcoming flood slows.
“Water development facilities, especially dangerous ones, pose a serious threat. I’d like to understand at what time dangerous facilities will be put in order. This work should be taken under control,” Shoigu said at a telephone conference on Monday.
Head of the Federal Service for Environmental, Technological and Nuclear Supervision (Rostekhnadzor) Nikolai Kutiin said, “Today there are 7,514 abandoned water development facilities and 155 dangerous hydraulic structures. These are low-height dams of municipal significance.”
Shoigu noted that Rostechnadzor representatives should be involved in all operative groups.
The minister pointed to glacial crossroads, which could pose a threat. “We should not scuttle the date when these crossroads will start destroying.”
