The Danube’s Deadly Secrets - Sustainability Snack

The Danube river basin is a toxic time bomb according to a new WWF study reported on by the Guardian. In the aftermath of last week’s toxic sludge spill in Hungary, the WWF demonstrates how the river flows through a series of heavy industrial developments, many of which have been neglected over the last few decades.

The danger says the WWF is  that,”There are a string of disasters waiting to happen at sites across the Danube basin.”

Using EU data WWF has identified that Hungary has the most vulnerable sites but warns that Serbia, Romania and Bulgaria also have industrial dumps that pose a significant environmental and freshwater threat.
