Agarak Copper-Molybdenum Combine CJSC waste water is again flowing into the Kartchevan River, as one of the local residents posted photos and a video about this on Facebook on July 16.
"Rehabilitation works are underway in the ore dressing plant. It flows from the aqueduct leading to the tailing dump. Instead of sending the wastewater to a tailing dump, it is discharged along the Kartchevan River to Araks. In the morning, we beat an alarm signal to the administration of the plant," the resident told EcoLur, noting that he had applied to the company's administration to resolve the issue.
Environmental Protection and Mining Inspection informed EcoLur that the specialists of Syunik Territorial Division of Inspection Body visited the scene today to conduct a site inspection. Further information will be provided.
