A “black” lake close to Douliana village

A friend and editor of Chania Post newspaper sent us these photos, mentioning…

I go often for runs in my area, gradually extending my knowledge of the area. Today, on a side road off a side road  near Douliana I came across something that really shocked me.

I enclose pictures but it is basically a small lake full of something that looks like tar but I think is more likely the dried residue of waste oil that has been dumped over years. The dead sheep doesn’t make it any more attractive.

I find it hard to believe that this is legal but am very uncertain who I should report it to.

We believe that the Municipality of Apokoronas has to take care of the situation and find out waht is going on with this “black” lake!
