Official: Contaminants in Norilsk waters exceed norm by 100%

MOSCOW, Jun 26 (PRIME) -- Content of harmful substances in the waters of the Russian city of Norilsk exceeds the norm by 100% before the fuel skimmers, a representative of emergency services told PRIME on Friday.

"During a survey, excess of concentration of oil products before the first line of skimmers  is two times above the allowed level," the official said.

A fuel tank at Norilsk-Taimyr Energy Company, part of Norilsk Nickel group, lost pressure on May 29 and leaked out fuel and lubricants into the river Ambarnaya, causing a fire.
