Water pollution reports

18 May, 2014

The Times reports garbage and carcasses in Guanabara Bay, where the 2016 Olympic sailing and windsurfing events will take place. Olympic hopeful Thomas Low-Beer says:

It can get really disgusting, with dog carcasses in some places and the water turning brown from sewage contamination.

The State Environmental Institute estimates that more than 10 percent of trash in the Bay is not collected.
