Venice canals water, nasty or clean?
24 January, 2007
The water in Venice canals are getting clean again. In the last 40 years the Sea Science Institute of the National Research Centre has carefully supervised the mud in the Venice lagoon canals deep.
The result: today the water is more clean and is getting better. Less metals, less bacteria. The modern sewage system, the eco washing powder, the ban of coal and gas oil are changing one of the most common bias about Venice and a shame for the town.
Maybe in a few you could see Venetian guys swim in the canals as it happened one century ago.
