Calangute is releasing untreated sewage in an open place

Goa : The Calangute Citizens Forum on Friday alleged that a resort in Agar Vaddo, Calangute, is releasing untreated sewage in an open place called ‘Fondvem’, which is used for rain water drainage.A video of the resort discharging sewage through a pipe has gone viral on social media platforms.’ “Releasing sewage in open spaces is illegal and creates pollution in surrounding areas, which may attract several diseases,” the forum stated in a letter to the chief secretary and other authorities.

It has demanded that the resort be shut immediately and the management be directed to build the necessary infrastructure to handle its sewage. Calangute panchayat member Shawn Martins said the panchayat had received the memorandum.“We have seen the video and through locals we have tried to check whether it’s sewage or pool water. It seems to be sewage. We will be issuing the resort a notice for inspection.
