With the long-term project to turn Sidon's notorious dumpsite into a proper landfill completed in early July, a new report has praised the recently constructed seawall for having stimulated the re-emergence of marine life.Sidon's dump was a major environmental issue in the southern city for over 30 years.The hill of waste, which once measured 58 meters high and covered 6 hectares of space, was recently turned into three modern landfills. For the time being, a 30,000 square meter public garden will be built next to the landfills until a green park comes to life in seven years' time.
