TYUMEN, March 22 (Itar-Tass) — The Russian Ministry of Natural Resources said it will be monitoring the ecology situation on the river Tura, which has dramatically worsened in the past few weeks.
"The quality of drinking water supplied to residents of the Tyumen region, has sharply deteriorated at the end of the winter. Initially, experts assumed that the specific odor of the water was caused by mass death of fish in the winter. But the nature of anomalous indicators suggested a possible man-made contamination with organic compounds," the Ministry's press service reported.
The most difficult situation developed in the village of Turinskya Sloboda. The district has many swamped areas and the odor is most concentrated there.
Experts believe there are several factors contributing to the worsening of t eh quality of water in the Tura: low water, lack of water and dumping of industrial waste.
The minister of natural resources ordered the dedicated departments to analyze the environmental situation in the region and work out a set of measures to stabilize it.
The Rosgidromet weather service was instructed to arrange additional monitoring of the upper reaches of the Tura to accurately assess the load on the water basin.
