Environment calls for tenders to cleanup Santo Domingo’s rivers
Santo Domingo.- The Environment Ministry on Thurs. called for tenders to remove all scrap metal and other materials from sunken and scuttled ships which release pollutants into the Ozama and Isabela riverbeds.
In a press release, Environment said the proposals must indicate the methods, procedures and times of each stage to be met (preparation, transfer, extraction and final disposal), define a schedule for each and comply with the legal and regulatory norms in port, labor, fiscal, customs, worksite safety, preservation of the environment, among others.
“The company executing the work will own the extracted waste whose handling, transfer and final disposal will be under and subject to its own cost and responsibility,” Environment said.
It said the proposals will be received until Friday, Nov. 3 and must be delivered to the Environment Ministry’s One-stop Window.
