Managers from both companies are currently being tried in Chieti, central Italy, along with 20 other suspects following an investigation by the forest service into harmful contamination. In a statement, the ISS went on to chide the companies for the “extraordinary environmental impact of the industrial activities in high-risk areas around the aquifer, and for reckless spilling”. Their actions, the ISS says, contaminated the water supply of 700,000 people in central Italy over the course of years. IMG id=mediaViewer title=”” alt=”” src=””ALL RIGHTS RESERVED
