By Zoila Palma Gonzalez: The Benque Viejo Town Council has issued a statement condemning the negligent disposal of oil waste that occurred today and polluted the Mopan River in Benque Viejo.
The oil has reached Coffin Creek which empties into the Mopan River.
The oil spill reportedly originated from a damaged tank belonging to a popular bus company in Benque.
The Town Council is calling on the company to take immediate action to clear the waste from the waterway.
The Department of the Environment and Friends for Conservation and Development is investigating.
