Whether to save the lake?
Near the village Stanczyk, on the fence of the construction site of the Orthodox Church, the defenders of lake Bolduc displayed a banner with the inscription “Save the lake and save the nature”, which can also be read as “Save and protect the lake and nature.”
Locals say that the Playground has already started intensive preparatory work – the place was fenced with net, the road to it was marked with pegs and begin to fill with gravel, started to dig and move somewhere pines growing there. Local also argue that the initiator and sponsor of building Nikolay Romanovich intends to buy the house next door to the Playground. One of the signs indicating it is a clearing of an abandoned well on the next site.
While environmentalists through the courts require under the Belarusian law for the holding of public hearings on the construction of this Church, people who are not indifferent to the fate of the lake, trying to protect him with their ways – hang a banner, collect signatures against the construction.
To the opinions of residents, environmentalists and experts, the initiators of the construction of the Church are not in a hurry to listen. I believe that they are not very well aware of the consequences of such construction. The lake is fragile and slow water exchange – the period of complete change of water in it is about 30 years is already suffering from the exponentially growing number of tourists, and the Church, together with the planned future farmstead and children’s camp will add to that number at least 200 people a day. But it’s not just the constant presence of people and other infrastructure, and given the fact that the public water supply system and Sewerage in the area at all no, it is not difficult to imagine the coming consequences of this construction. The Church may be the last straw in this ecosystem, making living a unique lake in the dead, because it is an inevitable consequence of eutrofication, the signs of which are already on the Bolduc.
It is not clear what effect this construction, but it is obvious that the attitude with which it is conducted. In addition to geopathogenic, dangerous to humans, areas, environmentalists have found there plants listed in the Red Book of Belarus. However, for the clergy, apparently, this information is not of particular interest.
