Abstract: In this column a fortnight ago I denounced the lackadaisical ap proach being adopted by the company entrusted with revamping the yacht marina facilities at Ta’ Xbiex and Msida. In a bid to cut corners the company was not recovering the hundreds of tons of discarded metal chain, concrete sinkers and nylon rope from the seabed. Finally, the Malta Environment and Planning Authority exerted the necessary pressure on the contractor involved to recover the submerged waste. Hopefully, Mepa will continue monitoring the area to ensure the company’s move is not a smokescreen and that it fully complies with cleaning the entire seabed. It is gratifying to see that, every so often, this column manages to influence, for the better, the country’s environmental authorities.
