Al-Hilla: Fadel Al-Ali
A field research team at the College of Science at the University of Babylon revealed that the Shatt al-Hilla was exposed to high levels of pollution, and at the same time warned of an environmental disaster and an outbreak of epidemic diseases.
The head of the team, Dr. Muhammad Ibrahim Al-Dhafiri, who specializes in the environmental field in the Department of Life Sciences, told “Al-Sabah”: “The water of the Shatt al-Hilla suffers from high levels of pollution, after it became a dumping ground as a result of throwing a lot of market waste, vegetables, shop water and dead animals, as well as detergents and medical waste. And restaurant waste, plastic cans, cardboard sheets, household waste, and others.”
He stressed that "the Shatt al-Hilla is being subjected to the most serious sabotage operation resulting from incorrect behavior," warning against "the transformation of the Shatt into a dead, lifeless river in the middle of the city." Al-Dhafiri warned that “the continuation of the environmental pollution of the beach in this manner will inevitably lead to the spread of dangerous epidemic diseases such as salmonella, typhoid, E. coli and other diseases of the digestive system, kidneys, skin and cancer.”
