EPA Found High Amount of Bacteria in Water

A huge amount of bacteria found in the human digestive system have been discovered in ’s offshore waters. An Environmental Public Authority (EPA) official said that the bacteria exceed the international limits for offshore areas and could pose a serious threat to the Kuwaiti waters’ marine ecosystem.

Senior EPA officials reportedly held an emergency meeting recently to discuss the Mishref plant’s continued illegal dumping of untreated raw sewage into the Gulf and the adverse effects this has had on marine life there.

Though the EPA has stated publicly that the liquid sewage is treated chemically before being transferred to the Gulf, its announcement about the bacteria discovery and the recent meeting seem to contradict this, reported Al-Watan.

The Ministry of Public Works (MPW) has reportedly stopped pumping oxygen into the Gulf waters to maintain a balance, which one environmental expert warned could increase the likelihood of large numbers of the fish in Kuwaiti waters dying off during summer.
