The recycle container placed on the Juarez bridge was installed to retain the garbage and prevent it from falling directly into the sea, however it has suffered severe damage, which is why the objective has not been met
Mazatlán, Sinaloa. – Given the lack of maintenance and cleaning, which the bio-fence placed on the Juarez Bridge has lacked to retain the garbage and prevent it from falling directly into the sea, it has suffered severe damage, which is why the objective has not been met.
Consequently, by not having adequate maintenance as planned and carried out in the beginning, the waste that is dragged by the currents of the rains that have been generated in recent days, these reach directly to the waters of the Pacific Ocean.
It was through a tour that Reacción Informativa carried out around the place, where it was found that, in effect, the desired project to avoid contamination and poisoning of marine species is in total abandonment, putting the fauna of the saline waters at risk. and consequently, the health of human beings when consuming these products.
Fishermen interviewed in the place agreed that on sporadic occasions, personnel assigned to give due maintenance to one of the projects so longed for by the environmentalists of Mazatlán, come to give an inspection and surveillance tour, which is why, when the bio-barrier is already saturated with garbage, the weight of it tends to break the ropes with which the buoys are held and the debris passes without any problem to run out at sea.
Rutilo López, a local fisherman, commented that it is very rare when you see those who initially gave it maintenance, only when they see it very saturated with garbage do, they show up to clean it.
“Well, just like once a week they come, but from there they don’t stop, if they see it full of garbage, they clean it up, but they don’t always come,” he commented.
Julián N, for his part, said that, although the bioburden is relatively new, it needs and requires maintenance, because the salty water combined with the sun’s rays deteriorates and wears out the material with which it is made.
