Cuban scientists prioritize environmental program in Nuevitas Bay

For the conservation of the coastline in that geographic enclave, several companies are joining the program for the decontamination of the bay with a series of investments to eliminate the 17 focal points detected in the period 2016-2020, explained the deputy delegate of CITMA in the territory, Lisbet Font, at a press briefing.

Scientific studies of the last five years determine that the environmental quality index of the waters is around 70 percent, acceptable according to international parameters while the hazardous waste treatment program reaches 97 percent of the same.

According to experts, the proper management of nearly 5,000 tons of polluting waste considerably reduces environmental risks, in addition to improving the quality of life of a population of about 50,000 inhabitants in this coastal municipality, located north of Camagüey.

Nuevitas is Camagüey’s main industrial center, which includes manufacturing infrastructure, thermoelectric generation and the most important seaport in the province, located in a pocket bay, which becomes a natural jewel, with a winding entrance channel, an uncommon geography for the rest of the Cuban estuaries.
