02/07/2017 Treatment of the issue of phytoplankton
In the last week of June, large amounts of phytoplankton began to cover almost all the area of the seafront of the Municipality of Durrës due to the deterioration of the natural phenomenon of red tide.
As a result, the outbreak of annoyance and ugly image began to occur, during the summer touristic season.
More specifically, from Monday 26 until Friday 30 June 2017, two anti-pollution boats, working boats, floating dams, skimmers, pumps and various vehicles were used, along with the employment of experienced scientific, technical and auxiliary personnel.
Effective practice to remove the phytoplankton dispersion was, inter alia, the flooding of floating dams, so that the accumulated quantity could be stowed and concentrated on specific points, and be removed seamlessly.
