Episode 3 - WE POLLUTE SOIL AND GROUNDWATER
We pollute the soil and groundwater: the consequences affect everyone, from microorganisms to fish and humans.
WE POLLUTE SOIL AND GROUNDWATER | Episode 3 Season 1
The largest illegal Poison landfill in Europe is in Bussi sul Tirino. Dioxins, chemical agents and heavy metals have been poured into the ground for years. Now the soil is polluted and the rain has brought the toxic substances into the groundwater. The Tirino river, a few meters away, brought them into Pescara and then into the sea. We have exceeded the legal limits for many carcinogenic and mutagenic substances by over 1000 times. Analysis of dioxins, copper, mercury, boron, lead, some PAHs and hydrocarbons showed levels of pollution never seen before. Watch the episode here. "The consequences affect everyone, from microorganisms to fish to humans. We got goosebumps." - 3Bee
