The water from Lake Baikal may soon cease to meet sanitary standards. This means that it can not be drunk and used for cooking.

How told RIA News scientists of the Limnological Institute of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Sciences, in a huge body of water has significantly increased the concentration of bacteria that release toxins.

In the coastal zone, experts note the spread of spirogyra algae, which can change the entire ecosystem of Baikal. In addition, powerful forest fires off the coast also affect the ecology.
