Google Earth shows a reservoir surrounded by mountains and promises wonderful landscapes….
This is a Tereble-Ritskaya hydropower plant, 27 megawatts. It is located on the Rika River. However, it uses the water from the Tereblya River, which is connected with the plant by means of a 3.7 kilometer-long pipe going through a mountain range.
That is why they built a reservoir on the Tereblya.
A nice mountain lake.
There are thousands of plastic bottles there and who knows how much dirty stuff is underwater! Moreover, it is not a local dirty spot but the whole lake is polluted.
In spite of the trash, the view is still great.
The amount of garbage can be explained by the fact that residents of the neighbouring villages up the stream may throw it into the river, and here in the reservoir the garbage is piling up.
To pollute the land, unlike the water, it is necessary to come here and leave trash behind.
