Red estuary

"Everything is under control" — tell us not to chiefs of different levels due to dusting of red mud. But villagers Lima, callers to the office, with this statement does not agree. "Officials are just euthanized your alertness distraction. And you come to us, see for yourself what is happening to the estuary. " And off we went.

Have left the Ship area — no dust, roadside clean. Then he turned off the road before arriving in Lima and went down to the water. What we expect to see? Ice on the estuary, wavy and transparent. Or dull, but the ice. But the ice was not. Before us was a brownish-red field that went off, and the end-edge of it was not. Martian desert …

The local people we met on the beach, they say, that the band of red mud dust deposited on the ice, extending to Parutino. Maybe the eye is not defined. Eerie sight. Dust some oily and sticky, it is greasy, like paint. It's on the ice. And on land eats into clothing and shoes.
On the bank of the form not less fantastic: pink puddle, reddish-pink trees, reddish dry grass …
But the residents of the village of Street Pier Limani say that last year was the worst. This time the "lucky" with the wind, so dust caught only village in the beginning, and then went to the estuary. But that settled here enough. White Cat Vera Vasilievna Surmilovoy, who lives in a house on the street. Waterfront, 7, returned in the evening red-red. Cat we have not seen, will not lie, but judging by the fact that settled on our shoes, red there may not only be a cat …
Vera said that people, of course, complain that every year dust contaminates their territory — courtyards, gardens and orchards. But most of them angry lack of information.
— But in the past year to come here various commissions. Who, what, why — no one there does not say. I collect flowers of acacia on the infusion, there is just some people drew water from the well. Ask if taken from a well in my yard. And why not? Take it, I say. Well then you just tell me what's in that water? You can drink it to us, we can not? Cows graze here, eat this grass, then we drink milk. You can drink it? Here, the cows graze in the forest plantation? Fruits and vegetables grown on the land, there can be? So far, the silence, no one, we have not said …
Slurry field near the village of watered all the time — they had seen. Machines replace one another, the work goes. But the question is: what will happen with the sludge that settled on the ice of the estuary? But nothing. Come spring, crackling ice, and carry it terribly red thing on the river. Then the ice melts, the water is buried in the following environmental "accident."
By the way, that the environmentalists? Environmentalists are working. As reported by us in the State Ecological Inspectorate in Mykolaiv region, on February 6, specialists daily sampled soil and surface water Bug estuary.
— Soil samples were taken at two sites southwest of slurry pits number 1 (in the direction of the Bug estuary), the area along the outskirts of. Estuaries. The analysis showed that the concentrations of iron (mobile forms) in soil samples at these sites do not exceed background concentrations and manganese do not exceed the maximum permissible concentration of chemicals in the soil. Aluminum in soil samples found. Maximum permissible concentrations of pollutants to waters of the fishery in the water sample were recorded, reported on the official website N.A.Kabashnaya Gosekoinspektsii in Mykolaiv region.
So, our eyes are lying? Or in the surface layers of the ice state environmentalists "dirt" is not looking? Or red dust for humans and fish are also harmless and safe as ground cinnamon? But villagers Limani do not believe it.
