Industries of El Alto and other nearby municipalities to Titicaca Lake, throw their waste and contaminated rivers that feed the lake waters. In the coming days, the El Alto municipality will inspect 21 industries sausages established in the city.
A month ago, a workshop was held on industrial building in which specialists trained representatives from various economic activities of El Alto on the importance of plants and wastewater treatment costs.
“We are moving forward. The industries are taking environmental consciousness, but we want all people to be involved contributing from their own homes to separate waste to give appropriate treatment. If we do not act now, in the future we will have very serious environmental problems” Quisberth said.
