Ecological Situation in Moscow City
The ecological situation of Moscow
is influenced by western and
northwest winds of the city. The
quality of city water resources is
better in the northwest part of the
city, higher by the Moskva River
current. The preservation and
development of squares, parks
and trees in the yards, which were
injured in recent years from dot
building is the most important
factor of the city ecosystem
Environmental monitoring in
Moscow is carried out by 39
automatic stationary stations.
They control the content of 22
polluting substances in the air
and its general level of
pollution. High level of
pollution of the air is noted
near large highways and
industrial zones; especially in
the center, in east and
southeast parts of the city.
The highest level of air pollution in
Moscow is observed in such areas as
Kapotnya, Kosino-Ukhtomsky and
Maryino — because of the Moscow Oil
Refinery Plant located within the city.
Krylatskoye, Kurkino, Mitino, Strogino
and Yasenevo are thought to be the
most environmentally friendly districts in
Motor transport gases are on the first
place among the sources of pollution
Air thermal power plants, other
plants and factories, even
evaporations of the heated asphalt
also pollute the air.
About 5 million tons of wastes are annually
formed in Moscow. However the effective
system of collecting, transportation and
recycling garbage isn't developed.
Moscow underground is not the most
useful place for health in the city.
Chemical researches of the air taken from
the tube showed the excess of maximum
permissible concentration of nitrogen
dioxide, oxide and carbon dioxide.
The condition of today
green plantings of
Moscow leaves much
to be desired.
The landscape of such sites
has a characteristic
appearance: old trees are
against a grass no more
than 2-3 cm high. And
almost there is total absence
of vegetation of the
Green plantings and the
woods of Moscow are
exposed to intensive
influences of technogenic and
