Experts from the West Aegean Basin Directorate – Blagoevgrad, RIEW-Blagoevgrad, RIEW-Sofia, and the Regional Laboratory of the EEA in the city conducted a check on a signal from fishermen for pollution of the Struma River.
According to the signal, the place of the pollution is near the bridge to the village of Pokrovnik, municipality of Blagoevgrad. After a detour in the area of sections with a total length of about 25 km along the Struma River and its tributaries Rilska and German, the inspectors found that the waters are cloudy, with a specific gray-black color, and the source is TPP “Bobov Dol”.
The pollution of the Struma River occurred through the river Razmetanitsa, a right tributary of the German River, which is a left tributary of the Struma River, which discharges wastewater from the activities of TPP “Bobov Dol” EAD. The company is a holder of a Complex Permit, according to which it can discharge treated wastewater into the Razmetanitsa River. In this case, the waters of the rivers Razmetanitsa, German and Struma are polluted by the discharge of wastewater from TPP “Bobov Dol”, with extremely high content of pollutants.
Meanwhile, the Executive Environment Agency (EEA) at the Ministry of Environment and Water has started reviewing and updating the complex permit of TPP Bobov Dol due to established systemic pollution on the basis of the Environmental Protection Act.
