Have You Seen a Dirtier Pond?

Posted on October 24, 2012 by team


This is the dirtiest pond on the planet. People know it as a "Black Hole". The illegal mud settling pit of the Dzerzhinsk plant resembles an empty eye socket on the face of the Earth. Fortunately, it is going to be "recultivated" soon which means they will fill it with sand and bulldoze it.

The pond is surrounded with a fence with barbed wire and warning signs, the gates are locked, a lot of rubber boots and gloves are lying about.

However the barbed wire is cut out in some places and one can easily get through.

    Is this Lake Karachay, the infamously polluted lake filled with waste from the Mayak nuclear facility? If so, I wouldn’t go anywhere near it, unless I wanted to glow in the dark!

    • somewords says:

      nice place to glow! dermal problem can quickly appear in this landscape…if you stay longer, you being certainly sick, long term.

    • petrohof says:

      no this is not that place, but soviet union had less that no regard for nature or future generations so there are many places that are super poluted to the point of being dangerous forever.

    • bEST says:

      Does it look like nuclear waste to you?
      It looks like bitumen to me, soviet countries used it in boiler houses to heat small villages and cities.

    The legacy of 70 years of dictatorship of the proletariat…maybe we should bury all the communist leader there and not at the Kremlin walls.

  3. Emperor Norton says:

    looks like one of the La Brea Tar Pits.

  4. ProudGerman says:

    It appears they may have pollution problems in Russia same as it as always been.

    Dzerzhinsk: Named after Comrade Feliks Dzerzhinsky and home to the extraordinary Soviet-build hyperboloidal Shukhov Tower.

    • Tiger says:

      Yes, that is why it is a city that kills its citizens since it is the most polluted place. That is true godless communism.

    almost 300,000 tons of chemical waste were improperly disposed between 1930 and 1998. In this waste, around 190 identified chemicals have been released into the groundwater. In places, the chemicals have turned the water into a white sludge containing dioxins and high levels of phenol – an industrial chemical that can lead to acute poisoning and death. These levels are reportedly 17 million times the safe limit. The Guinness Book of World Records has named Dzerzhinsk the most chemically polluted city in the world.

    Man, who the hell goes on such excursions, voluntarily??? Dzerzhinsk is the city where chemical weaponry was built, during the Soviet days. What can be dirtier than a chemical weapons factory? They actually MAKE highly toxic pollutants! Judging from their outfits, the excursion was conducted by kids. I hope they are well… I wouldn’t come within a mile from that place for sure.

    My family lives 14km away from this lake.
    I grew up near it and I didn’t even realise.
