By BBN Staff: The Department of the Environment (DOE) today issued a statement informing all Belizeans of the steps being taken to address the contamination of the New River.
The DOE says that more expertise and boots on the ground to tackle the problem is being procured at the moment.
There are Belizeans who have work experience in Mexico and elsewhere tackling similar problems on an industrial scale who are being contracted to assist with advising on and executing recommended solutions.
Monitoring of hydrogen sulfide in the air will be performed with the assistance of the Belize Natural Energy Ltd using their specialized equipment. This will help to assess the usefulness of the immediate solutions outlined above.
The Department of the Environment will also be forming a taskforce to coordinate efforts to monitor and tackle the immediate problems as best as possible.
They will also be providing frequent updates through press releases over the coming days so as to keep the public informed.
The public is reminded that in the absence of information reaching each and every person, there is still much happening and much work being carried out by the DOE and others to monitor and find solution to the problem being faced on the New River.
