Scientists: military explosions did not solve the problem of the Bureya landslide

Employees of the Khabarovsk regional department of the Russian Geographical Society (RGO), who visited the site of the descent of soil in the Bureysky reservoir, said that the explosions and the channel created with their help would not solve the problem of the landslide. The threat of flooding Chekundy remain.

“This is not a solution. The channel solves the problem of hydroelectric power station, it will work next year. But hopes that the water will wash away the shores and expand the canal are few. Therefore, there remains the threat of flooding the village of Chekunda. In the summer or in the autumn floods, water can rise very high. Despite all the actions of the military, the village is doomed, it must be resettled, ”said Alexei Makhinov, chairman of the regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society, deputy director for scientific work at the Institute of Water and Environmental Problems of the Far Eastern Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Another problem could be fragments of trees that ended up in the river after a rising wave from a landslide. She washed away many trees that are now in the river and in spring can cause problems for navigation.

“There is a lot of wood and the problem is to collect it. If they collect it from the lower side of the reservoir, the hydroelectric power station has special vessels, no vessel will pass through this dam. Shipping will be disrupted, ”said Alexey Makhinov.

At the same time, according to scientists, the hydropower plant will still incur annual losses: if the dam is not removed, there will remain a dead volume of water that will not participate in the generation of electricity.

“The military have completed their task and left, most likely, they will not return there. Besides them, no one there will not do anything. And the likelihood that water itself will blur everything is small, ”said Alexey Makhinov.

In early February, the military is ten days ahead of schedule. eliminated the collapse of the Bureisk reservoir in the Khabarovsk Territory. They made a channel for the passage of water and stated that the hydrological regime was restored, the threat of flooding of settlements and the Baikal-Amur Mainline is no longer.
