Site visit on wastewater treatment plant and urban waste site
CRCD Center representatives along with a group of journalists that participated in the online course and a three-day seminar on investigative journalism techniques, accompanied by Czech trainers of environmental journalism, undertook a site visit at the solid waste landfill in Vlora.
This site is very close to populated areas and neighborhoods of the city and is a real concern not only for nearby residents, because the waste are often burned and that can cause several respiratory diseases.
During the site visit and conversation with the responsible person, it was explained and photographed the technical process of waste separation.Then the group of journalists went to the wastewater treatment plant to photograph the situation and to know the problems related to the malfunctioning of the system even though it has been done a huge investment in 2006.
This was the third site visit to the areas with environmental contamination that made a serious concern for the community that lives there
