KHABAROVSK, August 28 (Itar-Tass) - Presidential plenipotentiary representative to the Far Eastern Federal District Viktor Ishayev has called for working out projects to build protective facilities along settlements in the Amur River basin.
The preliminary cost of new protective facilities in the Jewish Autonomous Region is estimated at 3.2 billion rubles. It will take 10 years to implement the project. The cost of protective facilities in Khabarovsk Territory amounts to 15-20 billion rubles, Ishayev said.
“All hydraulic constructions, which were built earlier, showed themselves in practice. We praised their effectiveness. We cannot admit such situation in the future. Thus, next year it is necessary to start building reliable dams and embankments,” he said.
All in all, 102,000 people, including over 19,000 children, have been hit by the flood in the Far East. A total of 11,000 houses and 570 socially important facilities turned out to be flooded.
