By John

Illegal dumping in the Cosentino area. The discovery came from the financiers of the Corigliano-Rossano Company, who subjected an agriturismo to an inspection to verify the correct management of sewage. After the reconnaissance of the premises and the tracing of the industrial wastewater systems of the structure, it was ascertained that the tracing liquid, after flowing into the specially modified Imhoff tubcontinued along an illegal underground pipeline, approximately 250 meters long, until it flows into the Malfrancato streamin an area subject to landscape restrictions.

This “expedient” would have allowed the waste produced by the tourist facility to flow into the stream for years, continuously avoiding the filling of the basin and its emptying for disposal, which must be carried out by specialized companies registered in the National Register of Environmental Managers .

Therefore, for the violations found in environmental matters, they were the premises of the accommodation facility were seizedthe modified Imhoff tank and the land in which the illegal pipeline was buried, while the person responsible has been reported at large at the Public Prosecutor’s Office of Castrovillari.
