Decontaminating Havana Bay over 15-YearsJanuary 23, 2013 | Print |
HAVANA TIMES – Under the slogan “15 years decontaminating Havana Bay” an event was held in Plaza Vieja, Old Havana last Sunday in which numerous articles were displayed artistically made from waste materials that if allowed to pollute the waters make life impossible.
The project began in 1998, and life has returned to the bay. The State Working Group continues to extract numerous contaminating materials from the seabed, and through these cultural festivals try to raise awareness in the population not to be throw waste materials in the bay.
