The shield of the left spillway was damaged at the station, reports RIA Novosti with reference to the regional committee for natural resources. As a result, the water level in the upper reservoir decreased.
At the same time, there is no threat to the life and health of people. Infrastructural facilities were not affected by flooding at the Siversky hydroelectric complex.
It is planned to eliminate the consequences of the accident in one day.
During the initial emergency response, a repair shield was installed to prevent a drop in the water level in the upper reservoir. The regulation of the upper and lower dams of the Oredezh River cascade was organized.
The water level is controlled in the entire cascade of hydraulic structures. Measures have been taken to protect the life and health of HPP workers, the environment, as well as the plant facilities that may be damaged by the negative consequences of the accident.
In the region, after a cold wave, a positive temperature was established and it rained.
