Water Pollution in Argentina
he pollution in this river is not new for Argentina. For almost 200 years the government has struggled with keeping the river clean. In the past the Matanza-Riachuelo was the point of entry for foreign commerce, and now houses thousands of industrial buildings along its banks, with 25% of its gross domestic product (GDP) coming out of this area.
Servicing an area of approximately 158 square miles, and a population of over 150,000 people. In order to meet all federal and state regulatory requirements and most to provide 24-hour per day wastewater service to our customers, the system is closely managed through our Water Pollution Control Division staff of approximately 115 employees. Since wastewater is 98% water and 2% pollutants, the Water Pollution Control Division must meet such stringent water quality standards that essentially they are removing over 95-99% of those 2% pollutants in the water
Fresh water is one of our most vital resources, and when our water is polluted it is not only devastating to the environment, but also to human health. The US relies on public water systems to treat and deliver just over 44 billion gallons of clean water each day to our homes, schools and businesses.
