The epidemiological situation of Matanzas was evaluated as stable by the group of managers and specialists of the Ministry of Science, Technology and Environment that visited the province.
Today the territory presents, as explained by the Doctor of Sciences Angel Alberto Alfonso Martínez, director of the Environmental Unit of the CITMA Matanzas, eleven pollutant sources declared as controlled.
“They are still polluting sources, what happens is that there is a real compliance with the current environmental legislation and attention to internal processes, which results in the residuals emitted by these industries or those facilities that constitute polluting sources, be discharged to the receiving bodies in a better situation “.
An example of this is the Porcino Center El Valle, an entity that has a comprehensive treatment system and the characterization of its residuals and the Rayonitro, a Matanzas company that although it operates with a 1948 technology, does not present contamination by gases.
Work is also being carried out in the province to clean up and provide a healthy ecosystem service in the bays of Cárdenas and Ciénaga de Zapata, this last seat of one of the best preserved coral sanctuaries in the Insular Caribbean.
To this the investments in the aqueduct of Cárdenas join -insufficient for the city that, according to the last Population and Housing Census, is the one that more grows in Cuba-, that of the Soplillar Channel -designed by the Dutch to dry the swamp and not to evacuate the wastewater, and that of the drainage system of the Camilo Cienfuegos district, in the city of Matanzas, which is part of the program designed to improve the lack of sewerage in the provincial capital.

Hence, the integral recovery of the dunes of Varadero with the dumping of sand and the repopulation of the lands with coastal plants remain as priorities; the engineering works in the Hicacos peninsula and Matanzas beaches; and the execution of a special plan to eliminate the vulnerabilities of the cities of Matanzas, Cárdenas and Santa Marta town .
