Projects aiming at gradually solving environmental and community problems contributed to diminish pollution in Ciego de Ávila in 1, 3 percent during 2009.

The result is due to maintenance actions on the treatment systems for residual liquids and oxidation ponds of several settlements.

Mery Urbano Calnick, specialist in environmental management in the province, informed that these works avoided the spilling of residues from two pig farms and eased the use of waste water from the Ciro Redondo torula factory.

She added that the sewage pipes of a school in the countryside and two communities were repaired, and two bioigestors were built to supply gas for cooking.

María of the Carmen Olivera, director of the Environment Unit at the Territorial Delegation of Science, Technology and Environment in Ciego de Ávila said that the province has 95 polluting sources registered on the national list.

The territory settled a strategy to guarantee and demand that new facilities and industries should have the necessary conditions to process their waste and get those already existent to perfect their systems.

The contribution of the Avilanians adds to that of all the Cubans who work to reduce or to eliminate the factors affecting the environment in times of climate change.
