Unique lake Tambukan on the brink of environmental disaster – news Stavropol and Stavropol territory
The Duma Committee on natural resources, environment, resort and tourist activities, together with the Deputy group “Caucasian Mineral Waters” recently held a retreat at the lake Tambukan, reported the press service of the regional Parliament. The discussion centered on the problems of the preservation of this unique therapeutic mud pond.
Opening the meeting, head of the Deputy group “CMS” Victor Vyshinsky declared that the Tambukan lake was on the verge of ecological disaster.
The fact is that over the last decade as a result of irresponsible interference in natural processes and climate change volume of water mass in the lake increased 2.5 times, and the depth is 5 meters. As a consequence, the salinity decreased to a critical level. A further decrease of the indicator “salinity” of water will inevitably lead to the loss of medicinal qualities tambukansky mud. And this is for resorts CMS “like death”.
The Stavropol Interdistrict nature protection public Prosecutor Sergey belevcev drew attention to the facts of the grossest violations of environmental laws: the water one of individuals privatized the land and built a cottage. Lawsuits about the withdrawal of this area to no avail.
Deputies Vasily Bondarev, Valery Kalugin, Nikolai Murashko figured out the specialists of scientific and design institutes, attended the meeting, about the origin of “illness” that struck the lake, and what needs to be done to save its healing qualities.
And if the causes and the diagnosis of “disease” for the participants of the meeting became clear, consolidated opinion about how “treatment” didn’t work out. And this is not surprising: after all, one Bank is owned by the Stavropol territory, the other – Kabardino-Balkar Republic, and the lake itself is in Federal ownership.
As a result, it was decided to ask the Governor of Stavropol Krai with a proposal to form an interdepartmental working group be tasked to develop proposals for the conservation of medicinal qualities of Tambukan.
