4.5 billion cubic meters of sewage are flushed into the Dnieper River annually and only 677.7 million of wastewaters are previously cleaned and conformed, the deputy prosecutor on environmental situation Luiza Yakovleva has announced today at a meeting of the Dnieper environmental Prosecutor's Office, as ForUm correspondent reports.

"More than 150 million cubic meters of wastewaters remain unpurified. Talking about water analysis, more than 900 tons of pollutants including phosphates, nitrates, sulfates, chlorides are dumped into the river together with sewage and it is not a complete list of the periodic table, which is present in the river water," she said.

According to Yakovleva, 14 enterprises have been continuing to dump the wastewaters for several years, 10% of which are dumping directly into Dnieper without even permissions for water use.

"At the same time, the environmental inspections do nothing more but issue administrative sanctions that do not help much to stop the violations," she said.
