The problem of underground water pollution with oil products unfortunately still remains of current importance for Bashkiria, since constant leaks of oil products from oil collection and storage systems formed many layers – so-called lenses – in the underground waters in the southern industrial hub of the Republic, in the northern industrial zone of Ufa and under all oil farms.

The chairman of the Union of Ecologists RB Alexander Veselov says the “tongue” of the underground water pollution has already reached Ufa-river near the UMPO health center “River Dawns”.

In order to solve this serious problem the Union of Ecologists RB offers to work up and apply very efficient project of underground water treatment, using the unit “Carlson”, designed by Ufa masters. The unit is equipped with the wind mini-engine, so it is able to collect oil and oil products from the lenses of underground waters without electric energy consumption. As the specialists say, such unit is repaid during just one month.
