My native town is Nizhny Tagil. Our town has very rich history, it is famous by its plants, monuments, inventions and people. ButNizhny Tagil, being a large metallurgical and engineering centre, is suffering ecological problems.

The problems of ecology are very important in our days. We speak about the global warming, pollution has become a universal problem. Millions of species animals, birds and fish have already disappeared from our planet. The ecology of the planet is disbalanced. A lot of scientists write about dirty ecology and if we want to live under the blue sky we must try to save our Earth.

But now I want to speak about ecological situation in Nizhny Tagil.

In Nizhny Tagil yearly about 159 mIn of cubic metres of industrial wastewaters are discharged into the rivers near and in the city. They contain more than 60 thousand tons of pollutants. The Tagil river is polluted with copper and zinc. That's why we have hard water.

In Nizhny Tagil the main polluters are the following industrial enterprises:

- Nizhny Tagil Metallurgical Plant - 51 % of town waste

- Plastic Mass Plant - 35 % of town waste

- Chemical Plant - 3 % of town waste

- Ural Wagon Plant =- 2% of town waste

The degree of air pollution by dust is 50 times more than permit limits. The ecology of our city influences the health both of children and grown - ups.

In Nizhny Tagil 10% of territory is occupied by dumps. The soil is also very much polluted by industrial emits. Especially vast territories are polluted within 3 km away from NTMP and the fact is that 60 % of the population of the city lives on this territory. The city becomes less green, the air -less clean.

I think everybody should try to clean our city, plant new trees, tidy up trash.

Active citizens of Nizhny Tagil initiated the movement «Green Parks» and I hope that the ecological situation will be improved.
