In particular, it is reported that at night the concentration of hydrogen sulfide in the street Guryanova area Printmakers exceed the legislatively approved sanitary standard 1.3 — 4 times.

However, the specialists of “Mosekomonitoring” note that at 9 a.m. on the territory of Moscow content in the atmosphere controlled substances does not exceed the standards established for the maximum single concentrations. It is also reported that expected during the day, intermittent rain and winds of 5-10 meters per second will contribute to the further improvement of the ecological situation in the capital. At the same time, experts urge to avoid a long stay, walks in territories where level of pollution of atmosphere exceeds 80 percent of the MCL. It is reported that in the first place, this recommendation applies to children, the elderly, people with diseases of the respiratory and cardiovascular systems, as well as pregnant women

Maximum permissible concentration — approved by law hygienic standard, indicating how the content in the atmosphere or other contaminant, according to available scientific data in the long term does not pose a threat to human health.
