The Volkslkrant reported that the North Sea Canal Area Environmental Agency has found toxic & carcinogenic substance Chromium 6 was recently found in groundwater on the site of steel manufacturer Tata Steel in Netherland and has has instructed Tata Steel to investigate as quickly as possible where this substance comes from and the extent of the contamination. The regulator wants Tata Steel to now investigate the effects and risks in the 'ecological area' and to rule out the possibility that the toxic, carcinogenic substance has spread to other areas via the groundwater. According to the GGD, there is currently no health risk because the substance is underground and no drinking water is extracted. As a result, there is now no question of exposure to Chromium 6. Tata Steel Netherland has been under fire for years because of the pollution and health problems that the company poses to the environment. The local residents therefore keep a close eye on pollution and every incident. For example, the Frisse Wind foundation, set up by concerned local residents from the Kennemerland region, installed a webcam a few months ago that permanently films the steel manufacturer's site. Last weekend, those images showed enormous smoke development at the so-called Kooksfabriek 2. Shortly afterwards, Tata Steel tweeted that 'a small fire' had indeed taken place and that there had been smoke development 'for a short time'. The clouds moved over the area. According to Sanne Walvisch of the Frisse Wind foundation, the smoke development was enormous.
