CAPA files environmental complaint after driver improperly dumps wastewater in Tulum plant

Tulum, Q.R. — CAPA has filed an official complaint with the Environmental Protection Attorney after a sewage truck driver improperly discharged wastewater in its facilities.

On Wednesday, the Comisión de Agua Potable y Alcantarillado (CAPA) filed a complaint with the Environmental Protection Attorney (PPA) for the events that occurred in the Tulum Bicentennial Wastewater Treatment Plant where a driver of a sewage entered and improperly discharged the waste.

In a statement, it was indicated that after the improper discharge of the waste, Víctor Angulo Canto, head of the Tulum station ensured sanitation of the affected area.

CAPA says they will exercise legal channels to carry out an investigation among the personnel responsible for the Bicentenario Wastewater Treatment Plant discharge.

The PPA (Procuraduría de Protección al Ambiente) says they will verify facts to initiate the environmental administrative procedures that will likely result in a fine since the management of wastewater is regulated by the National Water Law. Any breach of that law entails applicable sanctions by the state.
