Power company disses pollution claim
Santo Domingo.- The Seaboard-Transcontinental Capital Corporation company came out this Thursday in front of environmentalists who have denounced that the power generation barge, located on the Ozama River, represents a threat to ecosystems and a danger to the people of the environment.
In this sense, Amando Rodríguez, general manager of the entity, assured that with 32 years that they have been operating in the country, their plants comply with the local norms established under Law 64-00 of the Environment and its regulations, as well as the norms including the IFCs and the World Bank.
“They are wrong when they say that we pollute the air, that we pollute the water, the flora and fauna of the Ozama River without presenting any concrete data (…)
Sustainable Energy anyone?
Operating for 32 years without probs but all of a sudden not safe anymore.
Green new deal anyone?
Do not have to be a rocket scientist to see the smoke coming from the stacks of the plant on the floating barge to know there is pollution being expelled. The residents and workers in the area can see and smell it. Doubt the plant conforms with the environmental norms. It has been getting away with its operations because government really never pursued it obligation to protect the public and environment.
