EC might sue Bucharest over environment problems in the Danube Delta

The European Commission warned Romania that it has only two months to deal with the environment problems existing in the Danube Delta and the Sulina area – one of Europe’s most important wetlands – otherwise it will sue the state at the European Court of Justice, Realitatea.net reports. The commission is concerned with the problematic procedures of evaluating the potential impact of tourist development in this region, which belongs to the Nature 2000 network. Romanian authorities cleared a project that provides for developing tourist objectives in the Danube Delta. The Commission found shortcomings in the environment impact study that aimed at evaluating the potential negative effects of the project upon habitats and local bird species.
