Falus warns of pollution at Óbuda gas works
Environmental damage caused by soil pollution around the now defunct Óbuda gas works should be cleaned up, Ferenc Falus, the Budapest mayoral candidate of the leftist opposition, said on Wednesday, according to gepnarancs.hu.
Falus, joined by the mayoral candidate for the E-PM party in the local third district, told a press conference that Budapesters have a right to lead healthy lives, and the current mayor István Tarlós is not doing anything to fulfil his promise to ensure an environmental clean-up of the area.
It is not known how much of the poisonous arsenic, cyanide, phenol and mercury detected in the soil around the gas works’ grounds has reached the Danube, Falus said.
