Poland Environmental Issues:
The environmental issues for Poland have improved since 1989 due to the decline in heavy industry and an increased environmental concern by the post-Communist government. The pollution levels should continue to decrease as industrial establishments bring their facilities up to EU code; however this is at substantial cost to businesses and the government. Nonetheless, air pollution remains serious because of sulfur dioxide emissions from coal-fired power plants, and the resulting acid rain which has caused forest damage. The water pollution from industrial and municipal sources is also a problem, as is disposal of hazardous wastes.
