ALROSA will indemnify environmental damage due to pollution of water bodies in Yakutia

At the meeting in the government of Yakutia, the President of the ALROSA company, Sergey Ivanov, stated that the subsoil user does not refuse from its obligations to compensate for environmental damage that has inflicted on the republic’s water bodies after the accident at its dredging grounds. However, he noted that it was not the company's actions or inaction that led to this, but a natural anomaly.

According to the head of Yakutia, Aisen Nikolayev, now there are only preliminary calculations of damage, and the amounts vary. To determine the final amount of damage, the Ministry of Ecology, Environment and Forestry and federal regulatory authorities will appeal to the arbitration court. According to the press service of the government of the republic, ALROSA will be able to challenge this amount or agree with it. In any case, payments to the municipal budgets of the company will be. They will be directed to the creation of a system for providing residents of the Vililiu and Mirny districts with clean water.

Previously Rosprirodnadzor fined ALROSA for 600 thousand rubles for failure to comply with the points of license agreements in the development of the Gornoye and Irelye fields in Yakutia. This summer, violations have led to the breakthrough of technological dams and to large-scale pollution of water bodies, including the rivers Irely and Malaya Botuobiya, which flow into Vilyui - one of the main water arteries of Yakutia.
