UrBC, Magnitogorsk, August 17, 2018. A dike dam is nearly complete at Magnitogorsk Water Reservoir; the dike is part of Magnitogorsk Iron & Steel Works’ (MMK) water recycling system upgrades. The new dike, which cost the company some RUR 660m, will reduce the plant’s environmental impact considerably, MMK Information, PR & Advertising Department reports.

‘The dike dam will help decrease the volume of waste water dumped into the reservoir by eleven times, from 52,000 m3/hour down to 4,500 m3/hour, whereas the overall mass of dumped water will go down by seven times. This will insure maximum proofing of Magnitogorsk Water Reservoir against the harmful impact of MMK’s water recycling system,’ the company says.

The goal is to rely more heavily on recycled rather than sweet water through switching the plant’s heat and power station and Oxygen Plant 4 to recycled water from the cooling reservoir.

Once the construction jobs are over, some greens and marine plants will get planted around the dam, and fish will be introduced in Magnitogorsk Water Reservoir.
