A group of specialists have conducted environmental monitoring on the underlying platform, built for an artificial island southeast of the Caspian Sea, the Neutral Turkmenistan newspaper reported.
"The island is rapidly overgrown with saline grasses, which indicates the absence of harmful substances in the soil. In addition, on the slopes of the dams can be found snakes, which always settle near the waters where the fish live,” according to the article.
The construction of this unique facility began two years ago with the start of dredging work on the construction of an international seaport. Today it is the most extensive dredging in the world.
The island will be in shape of a crescent, with a perimeter of 7 kilometers, depth - 4-5 meters of water surface, the area - 160 hectares, or 1.6 million square meters. The island is expected to be used for eco-tourism in the future.
