The Magadan Interdistrict Environmental Prosecutor’s Office carried out an audit of compliance with the requirements of the legislation on the conservation of aquatic biological resources and their habitat.
It was found that during the gold mining of LLC “Start” for the purpose of water intake, the Peter stream is used in the absence of permits.
At the same time, there are no protective structures that ensure the protection of the water body from clogging, silting and depletion, which, as a result, led to the pollution of the reservoir.
In this regard, the environmental prosecutor opened 4 cases of administrative offenses against the legal entity and its director under Part 1 of Art. 8.45 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation (failure to comply with the requirements for equipping household and other facilities located within the boundaries of water protection zones with structures that ensure the protection of water bodies from pollution, clogging, siltation and depletion of water) and Art. 7.6 of the Administrative Code of the Russian Federation (use of water bodies without documents).
Based on the results of their consideration, LLC “Start” and its director were brought to administrative responsibility with the imposition of penalties in the form of fines.
At present, the violations have been eliminated, the water indicators meet the regulatory requirements.
