During the last hours, a resident of the city, in contact with EL DIA, reported the presence of fecal matter, garbage and waste of all kinds at the mouth of the Arroyo El Gato in the Santiago River. It also points out that it became a source of uncontrollable contamination.
Some time ago, in different notes published by this medium, the presence of contamination in the waters that are only a few meters from the intake of the Punta Lara water treatment plant was also reported.
In a video he filmed this Wednesday, the neighbor indignantly recounted the situation: “Here we are, on the bridge over the Arroyo de El Gato, on Almirante Brown avenue, Punta Lara road, the connection between downtown Ensenada and Punta Lara beach. This is how the stream is, from La Plata to its mouth. what is the water, floating fecal matter, garbage, a foul smell “, he pointed as he showed the images of the place.
