• Black hole - the most polluted body of water of the Earth
In the past - marshy Karst failure in this - the most polluted body of water on the planet. "Black Hole" - with such name is a place known to the general public.
Illegal slurry tank Dzerzhinsky factory "Plexiglas" reminiscent of the empty eye socket in the face of the earth. It is located between Nizhny Novgorod and Dzerzhinsk, on the outskirts of the eastern industrial area of Dzerzhinsk, the coordinates 56.2635788 43.6624149.
Fortunately (? Or unfortunately), the lake is very long - his plan to "reclaim" in the near future - or rather, covered with sand and leveled. Pile of sand has already brought and piled nearby. But still, anyone can come and look at this "charm" with his own eyes.
The lake is surrounded by barbed wire with signs prohibiting, warning, the door is closed on a chain and padlock, lying near the gate a lot of rubber boots and gloves.
However, in some places barb cut off and go inside the fence is not difficult
By boat used by ecologists sampling, paved path from the boards
The bottom of the lake is a viscous black and yellow muck
A boat. If there were an oar, I would have swam in it
If you step past the boards - you can get stuck
Gloves scooped from the bottom - well, shit!
unlucky insects and birds that have sense enough to land on the sticky surface, remain here forever
One of the coast of the black hole littered with rusty barrels from a chemical waste, which make up the bottom
The surface looks solid and stable, but attempts to get closer to the water line are fraught. We walked there four - three of them failed. In the photo - the shoes mate. As can be seen, it is hidden under a dust brown solid surface, and a dust - reddish muck
I was "lucky" more - I fell to his knees in the mud of a different color. By the way, if you manage to get even closer - then get out without assistance may not be able to ...
With boots and pants had to say good-bye, good with him were spare
On the lake shore lying pretty much single shoes and boots. So as not to "contaminate" the shore my pants, it was decided to burn them (with phone pictures)
Such is an unusual attraction.
Note that it is located in an area with a large number of chemical cemeteries, but they look different - more often it is fenced areas with sloping descents into the ground. Inputs into these hills bricked. Along the road and then there are pipes installed by environmentalists for weaning the soil pollution and groundwater samples.
In the hot weather in the area is better not to be - toxic fumes increase the concentration of toxic substances in a thousand times.
P. S. On foot everything is in order - not fonit not glow and the skin is peeled off
