After the earthquake, residents of the village Bolshoi Never Skovorodinsky area remained without proper drinking water.
After strong aftershocks from the local water intake went white — as it turned out, the groundwater were lime impurities.
Local residents are not at risk to use a liquid for food, so drinking water to bring them out of the district center, said Amur Pravda.
Bolshoy Never was almost at the epicenter of the earthquake that occurred last Friday. "Tremors" force 5.9 nevertsev left many without utensils, and some — no stoves, and, as it turned out, the whole village — without proper drinking water. Never in her supplied with artesian well water intake "head", which is located 12 kilometers from the village.
From there the water pipeline came at the village water tower, from which the water a few times a week, transported by tanker homes — get their own wells in the north of the Amur region is problematic.
After the earthquake, the equipment at the water intake was not affected, which is not about the quality of the groundwater. In the water there are white impurities that give the water milky.
— As soon as the incident became known, it was decided to stop supplying the village with water from this source. We will make samples and sent them for examination in the laboratory Tynda and Skovorodino Rospotrebnadzor. Experts will identify the nature of the impurities and their danger to humans — told the AP employee Nevers Beloborodova Hope Village Council.
According to experts, the reason for changing the color of the water can be limestone, disturbed by the earthquake. Period of groundwater contamination such impurities may be from a few days to several years.
Meanwhile, the assurances of officials, emergency on the water intake has not created a disruption in the supply of drinking water to the village — it is brought from the district center, which is located 13 km from Nevers.
According to the local administration, the cost of the vital fluid to the local population, such measures are not affected. Nevertsy still pay 74 rubles for a 200-liter barrel. Now the district authorities are seeking ways to address the problem by commissioning reserve wells, but this would require some financial outlay.
— There are two wells that have the potential to help solve the problem. Water samples have been sent to the laboratory. If need be, next to the well suited to be a platform for working pour trailer, purchase and install a submersible well pump and pipes. Well away from the village, so the supply of water will be a technical transport, — said the head of the district Skovorodinsky Alexey Tarasov.
