” Here in Storuman is Blaikengruvan. Three mining companies have been working at the mine and all is now in bankruptcy. Around the clock runs out contaminated water from open pits and mounds of crushed rock. The content of zinc in the quarries are thousands of times higher than what EPA considers to be directly lethal to plant and animal life.
Would the water run right out of Juktan is an imminent risk that all life is killed in both the lake and Juktån flowing into the Ume River. Contaminated water could reach drinking water pits down the coast and Umeå.
A reclamation of the area can cost up to EUR 200 million. Who will pay for that is unclear. This is crazy frustrating and my genes activist shouts “action”! Tomorrow, I presentation Sparbanksstiftelsen in the neighboring municipality of Lycksele where the audience is Storumans own councilor. Will definitely ask him what the municipality’s strategy and plan is when it comes to this rape of our municipality and nature. “
