Urban Industries Cause Belize Smelly Water Problem


Belize Monday said it is working towards addressing the unpleasant stench that is affecting the residents in the capital and has blamed the wastewater emanating from several industries operating “within close proximity to each other”. The Department of the Environment (DOE) said it is working to address the malodor affecting the quality of air and daily lives of residents and that “the types of effluent that are generated require different treatment approaches to mitigate negative environmental, human health and other impacts”.
