Radiating and ecological situation in the beginning of canal Pechora–Kama (Cherdynskuy region of Perm)
In 1971 the canal digging Pechora-Kama was begun, it was carried out by underground nuclear explosions. There were three explosions in total. As a result of it was the funnel of 800×600 meters. The soil was radioactive, gamma background capacity was to 600 μR/hour. Four more wells are prepared for explosion. Only because of international treaty signing on ban of land and air tests of atomic weapons the canal construction was stopped. Today this area is deserted and occasionally visited by tourists. Planned prospecting works to find oil and gas in this area should consider radiating pollution existence.
