The Environment and Resources Authority said it has stopped work on a construction site in St Julian’s after it caused seas pollution.

In a statement, ERA said that following reports in media regarding the release of construction material into the sea at Balluta Bay from a construction site, it had immediately stopped all activities on site until the developer installs adequate preventive measures.

These measures started being installed during the night under the supervision of ERA officers, whereby further works will be implemented throughout the day.

ERA said it will keep on monitoring the works until it is ascertained that all precautionary measures are undertaken.

ERA will also be taking action against the developer for breaching environmental law.
