An open coal yard in the premises of the Korean Electric Power Corp.-Salcon Power Corp. (Kepco-SPC) in Naga was the source of the coal dust pollution that bothered several households.
Only a closed, tight storage for coal deliveries was approved in the company’s Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC), said Engr. William Cuñado, environmental impact assessment management division chief of the Environmental Management Bureau in Central Visyas.
Last Tuesday, EMB-7 staff inspected the company’s coal yard . Results have yet to be released.
