KIROV, February 6. /ITAR-TASS/. Petrochemicals have been found in the river Vyatka at the site of gas condensate spilling, the press service of Kirov Region government reported.
The watchdogs will give their estimates upon the discovered facts.
Meanwhile, water samples in the area of the Novovyatsky district arboretum, well on the way from the accident site to the water intake structure, did not show limit exceedance of petroleum products.
The regional government’s press service said that data obtained after today’s tests of samples taken at the water intake system also showed low containing of petrochemicals in samples, which are 0.1-0.13 of the statutory limit.
On Wednesday and on Thursday, tests of air were made on the spot of the accident and nearby. Experts of Russia’s consumer rights watchdog said that on February 5 statutory limits of industrial emissions and hydrocarbon were not exceeded in the samples taken in the residential area and in the area affected by the accident. Watchdog experts believe that there is no threat to residents’ health.
According to specialists, gas condensate is a particle set free from natural gas that appears as a mixture of high-boiling liquid carbohydrates. Gas condensate is raw material for producing motor fuel and is also used in chemical industry. When it contacts the environment, a quick evaporation of high volatile particles of gas condensate occurs, and its toxicity declines. The remaining compounds partly dissolve in water and undergo processes of physic-chemical and biological destruction.
According to the preliminary version of the prosecutor’s office, the fire was caused by the contact system breakage.
About 700 people were evacuated from the area of the accident.
