Current Environmental Concerns

  • Air pollution remains serious because of sulfur dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants, and the resulting acid rain has caused forest damage.

  • Water pollution from industrial and municipal sources is also a problem, as is disposal of hazardous wastes.

  • Pollution levels should continue to decrease as industrial establishments bring their facilities up to EU code, but at substantial cost to business and the government.
