A major fuel #spill at a power plant in #Norilsk, #Russia has seriously damaged the fragile environment in the extreme north. The plant’s owner received a dressing down from President Putin, who was angered by its slow response.
The spill happened at a power plant located some 10km west of Norilsk, a big city in the far northern part of Western Siberia. Last Friday a storage tank was damaged, and an estimated 20,000 tons of diesel fuel escaped into the environment, contaminating the ground, two small rivers and a local lake.
