Russians Discoveres Why Arctic River Turned Blood-Red


The world's biggest nickel producer has admitted a spillage
at one of its plants was responsible for a river in the
Russian Arctic turning blood-red.
Norilsk Nickel says that heavy rains on 5 September caused
a "filtration dam" at its Nadezhda plant to overflow into the
Daldykan river
However, it says there is no danger to people or wildlife.
The company had flatly denied it was responsible when
images of the red river near Norilsk emerged last week.
A Greenpeace Russia activist says it is too early to judge
the impact.
"You can't just say that it's no big deal," Alexei Kiselyov told
the AFP news agency.
He said Norilsk Nickel controlled access to the entire
Taymyr Peninsula, where the incident happened, hampering
investigators looking into pollution from its plants.
Environment Ministry officials had suggested last week that
a leak of chemical pollutants from a pipe at the industrial
site could have discoloured the river.
Norilsk Nickel denied any such claim, however, even
posting pictures allegedly showing the river with a "natural
tone" on 7 September.
Indigenous groups have accused the company of lax safety
standards.
