Foundry fined for environmental offenses

17 February 2009 (09:07)

Sverdlovsk Region’s division of Rosprirodnadzor (the state environmental watchdog) carried out a scheduled inspection of a foundry based in Kamensk-Uralskiy. Ten environmental violations were detected in the course of the inspection, so the company will now have to pay 150,000 RUR in fines. A 10,000-ruble fine was imposed on the business for violating the water use regulations, a 40,000-ruble one – for violating the open air protection rules, and a 100,000-ruble one – for violating the rules of waste treatment, the spokesperson for the regional division of Rosprirodnadzor says.

In addition to this check, the division is currently busy with the scheduled inspections of Vodokanal in Berezovskiy, Uraltrubprom, Rezhevsky Mechanical Plant, and a local exploring and surveying company. Then, some inspections involve Sredneuralskiy Copper-Smelting Plant (upon Rosprirodnadzor’s order), Uraltransmash (upon Uralsnab’s application), Ural Military District’s Construction Administration (upon Oboronsnabsbyt’s application), and a downwarping in one of River Turya’s bypass ducts (upon Vakhrushevugol’s report).
