The air of Dimitrovgrad was gassed with sulfur dioxide for a short time on Sunday. This happened despite the fact that the thermal power plant (TPP) “Maritsa 3” was not working, the energy company reported, referring to data from the Environmental Executive Agency.

The Regional Environment and Water Inspectorate in Haskovo confirmed the exceedance of the average hourly norm at 10:00 a.m. on September 4, and the values ​​were 417 micrograms per cubic meter against a norm of 350 micrograms. Elevated levels of the gas, but below the maximum permissible concentration, were also present one hour before and two hours after. The eco-inspection also specified that an inspection of the Maritsa 3 TPP was immediately carried out, and it indeed found that the installations were stopped. It is probably about the transfer of air masses from a neighboring region, RIOSV-Haskovo added, quoted by BTA.

We demand that the control body in the person of RIOSV-Haskovo inform the public who exactly will bear responsibility for the registered excess, which is the 11th in a row for this year, writes the chief legal officer of the company Yulian Semerdzhiev in a letter to the media.

The air pollution of Dimitrovgrad with sulfur dioxide and its cause is the subject of a long-standing public and expert debate.
