Plèstik Bay stinks: Residents are fed up

Sargassum swireWILLEMSTAD - Residents near Boca Ascension and Dokterstuin have had it with the stench coming from the Plèstik Bay.

Last Sunday they protested against the bad odor in their neighborhood, which can be compared to rotten eggs. Some residents say they need to keep their windows and doors closed to keep out the stench.

The pungent smell is caused by the large amount of Sargassum wire in the bay. The cleaning action of the bay was started last Saturday.
