Photo de stock - 07 April 2021, Bolivia, Oruro: Large numbers of people take part in a large-scale cleaning operation at Lake Uru Uru. According to the Oruro government's environmental agency, 15 hectares of the lake are polluted with an estimated 30,000 tons of waste. ""The storm water drainage system is being used illegally for sewage,"" explained Sara Diaz of the environmental agency. Most of the waste covering Lake Uru Uru is plastic bottles. ""People who travel through this region throw the bottles through their car windows,"" she adds. The Center for the Environment and Andean Peoples (CEPA) also points to a more pervasive problem: ""Some of the acid mine water from the San Jose mine ends up directly in the lake,"" the non-governmental organization's latest report says. Cadmium, arsenic oxide and lead, among other contaminants, have been found above the limit at the lake, it said. The government and civic organizations have regularly called for cleanup efforts at the lake for years, ""but the acidic mine water is not being treated sufficiently,"" CEPA said. The concern is heightened by the fact that the lake has shrunk from 200 to 30 square kilometres due to the current drought, laments CEPA's Limbert Sanchez.
