In Togliatti will paint dangerous lake

Authorities Togliatti intend to paint bright colors in deterring dangerous for swimming, but popular among the citizens of the reservoirs. Among other ways to deter bathers from unsuitable lakes in the municipality are considering “planting” there is artificial seaweed.

Information about lakes painting appeared on the official site of the mayoralty of Tolyatti and the Ministry of forestry, environment and nature management of the Samara region. However, while these measures have the status of projects.

“This idea we have sounded rather at the level of propaganda, technology is only being studied. Any way we need to preserve human life, but people continue to bathe in the forbidden places and to perish”, – said the head of the Department of public safety Togliatti Konstantin Firsov. Now the city is considered a few ideas that may solve the problem of extreme swimmers. Raids and warning signs don’t convince people that the rest can end in tears.

The technology of color lakes food dyes currently being developed by rescuers in Germany. There was prepared a small artificial reservoir filled with rain water. Now experts see how stable the dye and whether it is compatiblewith aquatic flora and fauna.

“Of course, you need to look, what is this dye. If food, then it’s organic. And organics is a fertilizer, depending on dose, it can cause rapid algal growth, leading to a sharp decrease in oxygen in the pond. That is, such experiments can end in serious violation of the ecosystem and even the death of the pond”, – commented on the idea of Togliatti member of the public chamber of Russia, co-Chairman international socially-the ecological Union Sergey Simak.
