DOE to Host Public Consultation on New River Problem

The establishments and factories that have been discharging effluents into the New River will be sent a letter containing corrective recommendations.  An advisory will also be issued to the public, and according to Doctor Percival Cho, the aim is to host a public consultation sometime this week.

“This time around they are coming up with different recommendation again to give to the industries along the river as well as to the general populace in the area as well as the town’s officials as well. They are compiling those and I think that they aim have some public consultation or some advisory sometime this week. They normally issue official letters to the industries or establishments that they have observed putting in some level of effluent into the river to make corrective recommendations. So that is what they normally do. So of course a letter forthcoming to the various parties that have been identified as the sources of the effluent.”
