MMK completes implementation of large-scale water protection project

21 Aug 2018

The construction of a separating dam at Magnitogorsk Reservoir, part of rebuilding processes of Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works’ (MMK) circulating water supply system, is entering its final stages. The project, at a cost of approximately 660 million rubles, will significantly reduce the environmental burden on the reservoir.

This is one of MMK’s most important initiatives with regards to protecting the surface waters of the Magnitogorsk Reservoir and the Ural River. It will reduce the volume of discharged pollutants by a factor of 7 as well as the volume of discharged water by a factor of 11: from 52,000 cubic meters per hour to 4,500 per hour. As a result, the Magnitogorsk reservoir will be maximally isolated from the impact of MMK’s water supply system. The project provides for an increase in the volumes of recycled water supply due to the transfer of CHP and Oxygen Station No. 4 recycling processes to the cooling tank area.

The implementation of the project “Reconstruction of the water recycling supply system of PJSC MMK with the expansion of the cooling tank”, along with ongoing beach improvement activities, will significantly improve the water quality in the Magnitogorsk Reservoir and, as a result, allow the use of the reservoir for recreational and fishing purposes.
