The most serious environmental concerns of Dnepropetrovsk
Drinking and domestic water out of water taps, pump-rooms, wells located in the city is importable and unusable. Water is polluted by organochlorine contaminants, oil products, surfactants, etc. During summer time it is polluted by dioxins caused by the blue-green blanket degradation. On boiling, water toxicity is increasing significantly; in some cases dioxins are generated.
National Security Priorities
This April, the activists of the Social movement “For the right of citizens to environmental safety” performed a large amount of work evaluating quality of drinking water piped through a tap in Ukrainian cities and towns. They collected more than 200 water samples and conducted a study on 27 indicators to characterize quality in a specialized certified laboratory.
When talking about radiation in Ukraine, I recall the accident at the Chernobyl Atomic Electric Power Station in 1986. Nobody is aware of what is happening in Dnepropetrovsk region, where deposits of uranium and uranium bearing ores are concentrated, mining and processing thereof is carried out, 12 tailing pounds of radioactive waste are located, metallurgical, coke-chemical, chemical enterprises and thermal power stations are concentrated.
