How strongly are the sewage treatment plants affected by the recent floods?

The floods apparently also damaged a number of sewage treatment plants, so that there is a risk of contaminated water flowing into the rivers. DP MP Gusty Graas asked the ministre responsible if this was the case, which sewage treatment plants were affected and what the impact was on the rivers.

« Il me revient que, suite aux intempéries et inondations du 15 juillet, un certain nombre de stations de traitement des eaux usées auraient été endommagées.

Dans ce contexte j’aimerais poser les questions suivantes à Madame la Ministre de l’Environnement, du Climat et du Développement durable :

  • Madame la Ministre peut-elle informer quelles stations ont été touchées par les intempéries et inondations ?
  • Madame la Ministre peut-elle préciser la nature et les dimensions respectives des dégâts ?
  • Quel en est l’impact sur les milieux aquatiques ?
  • À quelle hauteur les dégâts peuvent-ils être estimés ?
  • Sachant que déjà avant les intempéries et inondations récentes, les projets de modernisation et d’extension des stations de traitement des eaux usées avaient mis les communes respectivement les syndicats de communes sous une pression financière importante, est-il prévu, le cas échéant, d’accorder des aides pour remettre en état les stations concernées ? »

Pediatrics in Luxembourg

If the child is sick but the pediatrician is not available at the moment, parents can take their child to the children’s clinic, the Bohler Clinic or the children’s outpatient clinic in the North Hospital. In addition to long waiting times, parents from the north and east of the country in particular often have to travel long distances. DP MPs André Bauler and Carole Hartmann therefore wanted to know from the Minister of Health how many staff work in pediatrics and whether further services will be offered for the north and east.
