All the pesticides left in the area of Nairit Plant shall be gathered, stored and eliminated using the existing possibilities available in the republic, as Deputy Director of Rescue Service of RA Ministry for Emergency States Vrezh Gabrielyan said during the discussions held on the fires having broken out in Nairit Plant and Khosrov Forest State Reserve at the meeting of RA National Assembly Standing Committee on Territorial Administration, Local Self-Governance, Agriculture and Environment.
Aram Aghasyan, Head of Department for Management of Specifically Protected Areas of Nature and Dendroparks of RA Nature Protection Ministry, reported that out of 2200 ha only 365 ha haven’t been burnt down in the fire.
The fire hasn’t mainly damaged the root system of the plants and some tree species have been recovered already after 20 days.
The reporters stated that one of the main drawbacks in the fire in Khosrov Forest and 24 days of post-firefighting were the absence of the communication means, which VivaCell-MTS intends to regulate in future.
