〰️ The Matanza Set 〰️ 🇦🇷 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Rio Matanza translates from Spanish to 'Slaughter River' in English.
An estimated 15,000 industries actively release effluent into the Matanza-Riachuelo river basin, which runs through the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires.
It's so toxic, people whose lives depend on it have contracted diseases. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Residents say the river used to be a source of food for them.
More than half of the 20,000 people who live near it reside in areas considered unsuitable for human habitation. Many suffer rashes, gastro-intestinal diseases, diarrhea and cancer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But the government is planning to construct a sewage system to clean up the contaminated river.
They will make 40 kilometres of tunnels, several sewage plants and a massive water treatment facility set to be complete in 2021 😃 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
