Last week, work was completed to eliminate the consequences of the accident in the Naujene volost of the Augsdaugava region.

At the end of November, approximately 14,000 tons of sewage sludge was released into the environment from the Kryzhi sludge fields. The VARAM Ministry and the State Environmental Service did not support the request of the local government to declare emergency situations in three volosts of the Augsdaugava region due to the accident.

From November 25 to December 22, about 13,000 cubic meters of silt were collected and transported to a safe place,

An expert assessment was carried out to assess how the accident affected the fish population and water quality in the nearby rivers Stropitsa and Liksna. The death of fish on the territory contaminated with silt was not ascertained.

At the same time, experts note that the consequences of this accident may be long-term, and, possibly, will become noticeable when it gets warmer and the growing season begins.

Due to sludge leakage, 5 land plots with a total area of ‚Äč‚Äčabout five hectares were affected. In addition, the Stropitsa River was polluted for 3.3 kilometers.
