In Buryatia, a company owning a plot of land will pay compensation for the pollution of Lake Baikal. On its territory there was a spill of mine waters of the former Dzhidinsky tungsten-molybdenum plant. Ecological damage exceeded 42 million rubles.

According to the press service of the Baikal Environmental Prosecutor’s Office, a statement was received from residents about the pollution of the Modonkul River, the waters of which flow into the Dzhida and Selenga rivers, and then into Baikal. During the audit, it turned out that the content of cadmium, copper, arsenic, tungsten in water exceeded the maximum permissible concentrations by 10-50 times.

According to the norms of land legislation, the responsibility lies with the owner of the site, which, according to the supervisory authority, is Wolframine LLC. By a court decision, 42,5 million rubles of compensation were recovered from the joint-stock company in favor of the budget of the municipality.
