Today local residents called the spilling of hydrocarbon waste from oil companies in the former reservoir of Kashi in Mallakastër, a real environmental “massacre”.

Once a reservoir that served as a rainwater collector and for soil irrigation, it has now turned into a hydrocarbon waste dump. T

he head of the environmentalist association “Zharreza”, Qani Rredhi, says that this situation has become extremely alarming, especially in the last ten years.

The pollution affects the health of the residents of the area, but it has put a lot of agricultural land out of use.

Hydrocarbon waste now occupies an area of 9,000 square meters, causing residents to abandon their homes and agricultural lands.
