If it can be avoided, will the utility company Hofor avoid to emit sewage into the sea as well as lakes and rivers for that matter.
It informs Hofor in a press release.
- It is, as we have observed currently, is that there is a very large political pressure and interest in order to say that it here we do not, says Hofors forsyningsdirektør, Ole Fritz Adeler.
- we then check and put a stopper for now. So it will have some cost financially, but the ones we are with.
He makes the point that, in connection with construction projects or the like may be parties other than the Hofor, who is going to pay for the extra costs.
Hofors discharge of the effluent came on the agenda, as Hofor got the green light from the administration in Copenhagen Municipality for the pouring of 290,000 cubic metres of waste water out in the Sound.
After the political criticism was the discharge stopped, and now draws Hofor the plug on planned discharges of effluent.
technically, it is a stop for the planned discharges, as Hofor has announced.
This is because there may arise emergency situations where it is necessary to act differently.
- We can never guard ourselves against the breach of the wires. There may be an external party who dig our wire over. There may be a boat, sailing into our wire. There may be other things that make that a wire breaks, says Ole Fritz Adeler.
- There is a rapid reaction situation, which we act on.
Some suggest that Hofor has read the political mood in Copenhagen right.
According to TV2 Lorry has a unanimous borgerrepræsentation in the municipality declared that they want to Hofor drop scheduled discharges of wastewater.
Previously the utility company Novafos done the same.
