Sosúa River cleanup: update

During the cleanup, some 20 volunteers, hauled a large part of the garbage out of the river Sosúa. The fire brigade of Sosúa and the water company CORAPLATA with the support of the town council had made boats, shovel materials and plastic bags available. A big pile of waste, consisting of plastic bottles, packaging and food trays was removed from the river. And there was quite a lot of plastic waste in the river. The organizing committee had hoped for more volunteers. But the volunteers that were present there worked hard to remove a large part of the garbage from the river. So those men and women deserve all the praise. Unfortunately it is true that the adjacent villages still use the river as a sewer. As long as these villages have no functioning sewerage system, pollution will continue.
