“The passage to the water object is closed”, a resident of Nizhnekamsk complained to the Zakamskiy Territorial Administration of the Ministry of Environment of the Republic of Tatarstan. “The structure, located along the shore of Dolgoye Lake, stands for about 20 years. And we, members of the Stroitel garden society, cannot simply pass to the water body”, complained the citizen. When environmentalists arrived at the site, the fact of violation of environmental legislation was confirmed. In relation to the natural person who committed the violation, an administrative investigation was conducted under Part 1 of Art. 8.12.
