Riachuelo: They close and fine two greasers in Valentín Alsina

In the Mapar grease shop, there were inspections throughout last week, both day and night. There, several unauthorized overturns were detected, flowing into the Millán stream, which is located on the path of the Riachuelo riverbank.

With this certainty, the authorities searched inside the company to detect the clandestine connection.

The procedures were carried out due to the presumption of irregular dumping that arose from environmental audits carried out by ACUMAR.

There were also several complaints from the community for these illegal activities of dumping grease waste into the watercourse.

It turned out that in one of those night inspections, the device by which the establishment carried out clandestine maneuvers of dumping untreated effluent directly into the stormwater could be discovered.

This practice was what led to the total closure of the establishment and its production processes.

The company also received fines corresponding to the infractions committed and was instructed to solve the irregularities detected.

It must include improvements in the gas and liquid effluent treatment plant, otherwise the closure will continue in force.

They will only be able to return to their regular activities when ACUMAR verifies that the establishment carries out its production in accordance with current regulations.

The company Hebos, which is dedicated to the refinement of fats, was also the object of the control operation.

On that occasion, leaks of its raw material were detected in the company’s own gutter.

As a result of this situation, economic fines corresponding to this type of infraction were applied to him and he was also given a summons to make improvements to his plant. The company promised to correct the anomaly and carry out works to correct the incident.

It is worth noting that this operation was planned based on complaints made to the agency by the community of Valentín Alsina.
