The Ministry of Natural Resources and the Environment says it has ordered the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to intensify monitoring of Bosai Minerals Group (Guyana) Inc (BMGGI) tailings discharge into the Kara Kara Creek, Region 10.This was after the bauxite company was cleared to resume the discharge following remedial works which led to the waterway returning to normalcy.Bosai has done remedial works and has been allowed to continue its discharge into the Kara Kara Creek,Cheap Soccer Jerseys, Region 10.Tests carried out recently found that the bauxite company’s tailings discharge was almost six times the allowed turbidity levels.An EPA team late last month had instructed Bosai to cease operation of its wash plant and tailings discharge, and to ensure the remedial measures to prevent further contamination are put into place.Water quality assessment of turbidity levels at the discharge point was found to be 288 NTU.According to the Ministry yesterday,Wholesale NFL Jerseys, the Mining (Amendment) Regulations 2005 in Guyana stipulate that tailings water can be discharged into a river or creek once it meets the turbidity of less than 50 NTU.Turbidity refers to a measure of the amount of light that passes through water.
