“The work was carried out from a barge equipped with a crane for removing large household waste. A vessel equipped with a special bucket for lifting soil and silt sediments on board is involved in more complex measures to deepen the bottom, – said Pyotr Biryukov. “In total, we raised 32 tons of household waste, it will be disposed of.”
