There are major resources of brown coal as well.
The sort of aromatic tobacco, ?Dubek?, which is grown in our region only, is used as an additive in cigarette production.

Among the working heating systems which are located in the 1st microdistrict (29.2 km), 18.4 km are in an unsatisfactory condition;
Because of the hard water, house pipes are now encrusted and that leads to low heat transfer and requires their complete replacement;
The annual expenses of the boiler-house are approximately 15.0 million som, and payment for provided heat energy amounts to only 3.5 million som. Therefore, annual losses are 11.5 million som which are paid for by state subsidies.
For reestablish normal work of the thermal power station it is necessary:
