Hungarian river pollution talks

8 June 2007

The Nepszabadsag daily reports that the Raba River Committee, comprising representatives of the Hungarian and Austrian governments, met recently to discuss the issue of the pollution of the Raba river by three Austrian tanneries, according to the Interfax news agency. The committee will formulate a plan of action by September and will meet frequently until then. Hungarian officials were reported as saying that the situation is difficult because none of the three factories by themselves exceed chemical pollution limits, although their combined output does constitute an environmental hazard.
