After Saturday has been sharp criticism of the utility companies Hofor and Novafos will get rid of 290,000 cubic metres of waste water out in the Sound, is being worked on spildevandsledningen now been postponed for 24 hours.
It informs Hofor in an email to Ritzau.
- because of a construction on top of a vital spildevandsledning in Nordhavn in Copenhagen Hofor in five days, derive wastewater four miles out in the Sound.
- the Work was scheduled to go in again Sunday morning, but after the agreement with the Municipality of Copenhagen is now postponed for 24 hours, so it can only start on Monday morning, write Hofor.
It is hovedspildevandsledningen, in which the effluent from the Copenhagen, Frederiksberg and Gentofte Municipality runs that were scheduled temporarily closed from Sunday, and five days forward.
the Reason is that one is in the process of expanding Svanemølleholmen in Nordhavn in Copenhagen.
But before construction can become a reality, it must be examined whether the wire can handle, that will be built on top of, and so must be secured.
While the work is taking place, the cord can not, however, be used. Instead, the wastewater from the three municipalities, released four kilometres out in the Sound.
Hofor and Novafos has previously stated that the discharge should not affect water quality or the marine environment. But there are several who feel ignored.
Both marinbiologer at the Danish society for nature conservation and Øresundsakvariet have criticized emissions.
Also, Danish and Swedish politicians have criticized the decision and called for the work are exposed, including the minister of the environment Lea Wermelin (S).
the Plans have been approved by both the Gentofte Municipality and Copenhagen Municipality. These are the two municipalities that have the authority to hear the case.
the Case has been handled in the municipal administrations and have not been past the political committee.
It means that kommunalpolitikerne was not aware that the work on the spildevandsledningen would go in the walk on Sunday. And it was Saturday the Copenhagen technology and environment mayor, Ninna Hedeager Olsen (EL), to launch an explanation of the process.
According to Peter Paghn, who is a professor in environmental law at the Copenhagen University, it is ultimately up to the technical and environmental administration or Engineering and the committee on the Environment, to decide whether the work - and thus emissions - to be postponed.
