SUMMRY:
This article discusses the results of monitoring the effects of multi-day tank farm burning. Shows the presence of a significant emission and transfer over a considerable distance (more than 15 km) of an indicator marker of pollution by polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons benz(a)pyrene, the levels of which in soil at a depth of up to 20 cm exceed the MPC by 720 times.
There is a high degree of pollution of seasonal agricultural products - salads, strawberries, cherries, etc. At the same time, it was proved that under the condition of sanitary treatment with run-ning water, the products are almost completely cleaned, which indicates its surface contamination.
Conducted hygienic assessment of the obtained results in terms of danger to the population.
