Observed indicators of the sea water have been returning back to normal after the stranded "Vera Su" ship was towed to the port of Varna, the Ministry of Environment and Waters has reported.

Currently, ammonium nitrogen levels are 0.04 - 0.02 mg/l, which is typical for sea waters. This level is 17 to 35 times lower than the values recorded on the day of the ship’s cargo unloading. The concentration has declined as a result of the physical dilution in sea water, as well as factors such as wind, wave and currents that are typical for the season in this region.
