Freezes, oil mill disposed of waste polluting land: seizure and complaint triggered

The pollution of the land surrounding the Gela river does not stop. What devastates them is the waste from the milling of the olives. In recent days, a joint check carried out by the Gela Port Authority and by the Noe of the Carabinieri of Caltanissetta, under the coordination of the Public Prosecutor of Gela, has ascertained the spillage on land adjacent to the river bed of large quantities of vegetation water deriving from the milling of the olives illegally spilled there by the managers of a local oil mill.

At the end of the investigations, the owner of the company was referred to the Public Prosecutor’s Office for the crime referred to in article 256, paragraph 2, of Legislative Decree 152/2006, as well as sequestering the entire affected area , for a total of about 4,000 square meters

In consideration of the close proximity to the banks of the Gela river, in the event of adverse weather phenomena, they could pour into the surface waters, flowing directly into the sea. For these reasons, formal communication was given to the competent Municipal Administration for the measures necessary for the purpose of environmental remediation.
