One of the worst of the accidents at Mayak was the Kyshtym disaster on 29 September 1957, during which a spent nuclear fuel tank exploded, spewing massive amounts of radiological contamination. Although there is no direct dumping today, the river remains heavily contaminated with radiological pollution, and continues to be polluted through routine discharges from Mayak via bypass canals and the filtrate of Dam 11. Communities not evacuated in the wake of the disasters are forced to continue living in a heavily radioactive environment.
