Re: Spillage at Effluent Holding Pond
WINDALCO wishes to respond to concerns from the public and the media regarding allegations of a fish kill in the Rio Cobre in St. Catherine.
The National Environment and Planning Agency (NEPA) and other regulatory agencies are conducting their investigations.
WINDALCO, through its Environmental Management Programme and established protocols, continues to implement all required measures to secure the waterways from any kind of environmental impact.
These include creating a berm to retard the flow of effluent leaving the facility; testing to ensure that values are in line with the NRCA standards; flushing of streams with fresh water at several different locations; and maximizing efforts to curtail the excursion itself from the holding pond.
The Company is continuing monitoring activities to ensure that environmental standards are maintained.
