An operation has been carried out in Lake Khuvsgul to locate and remove sunken vehicles since this June at the initiative of President of Mongolia. The operation aims to protect the local ecological system by cleaning the bottom of the lake from hazardous waste and reducing its pollution.
During his visit, a 17.8-ton tank car of the Zil-130 model was removed from the lake, which sank in 1981 at a depth of 74 meters.
The vehicles that have been recovered since this June include a Zil-130 fuel truck with a trailer that sank in 1995 at a depth of 128 meters, about 2.5 kilometers from the Maraan Bay of Lake Khuvsgul, and a 6-ton fuel trail at a depth of 54 meters, about 1.4 kilometers from the shore of Lake Khuvsgul.
In total, 34.7 tons of fuel and lubricants were removed from vehicles, which is a significant contribution to reducing pollution of Khuvsgul Lake and the environment.
