The consequences of leakage of oil products are liquidated on the Ob in the Kubovinsky village council of the Novosibirsk region, according to the EMERCOM of Russia in the Novosibirsk region on Friday.
The pollution of the shoreline by oil products was noticed by eyewitnesses. Specialists of the rescue service of the Novosibirsk region found contamination of the ground along the river bank with an oily film on an area of about 300 meters. To prevent the spread of contamination, rescuers put up bunk fences.
Step by step, being knee-deep or waist-deep in cold water, rescuers take out soil contaminated with oil by shovels, collect them in bags for subsequent removal and disposal. From the water surface, the oil film is collected and treated with sorbents. In total, 44 persons and 12 units of equipment are involved in the liquidation of the consequences of the oil spill.
According to one version, the pollution occurred as a result of oil leakage from one of the ships standing on the shore.
