EPA está considerando otorgar permiso para almacenar tóxicos peligrosos a empresa cuyas instalaciones están ubicadas dentro del cauce inundable (cuenca hidrográfica) del Rio Grande de Añasco. Esto presenta grave riesgo de contaminación de la fuente de agua potable para 7 pueblos y áreas costeras, afectando la salud de residentes humanos, fauna y flora, la agricultura y el turismo, entre otros.
