SWEDEN -- A thousand truckloads of shaft masses were unlawfully dumped in the forest in connection with the construction of the future wind farm in Viksjö, northwest of Härnösand. The company has previously been reported to the police and is now at risk of new police reports.
It was at an environmental inspection that the county administrative board in Västernorrland discovered the gigantic dumping site in the future Hästkullen wind farm outside Viksjö.
The County Administrative Board has estimated that these are 10,000 cubic meters of masses that were unlawfully dumped in a steep slope towards an marsh area. In connection with the inspection, the power company Nysäter Wind decided to immediately stop the entire building.
- Yes, the company's representative seemed just as ignorant of the dumping as we say Anna Bäckman, environmental manager at the County Administrative Board.
Police report to wait
Already this summer, the County Administrative Board in Västernorrland notified the company that it had not submitted its control program on time, it is currently being handled by environmental prosecutors. And there are many indications that there will be new police reports against the company.
- The County Administrative Board is obliged to report if we see that there is a risk that there has been an environmental crime, that is the only thing I can say at present, says environmental manager Anna Bäckman.
