The Costa Brava landfill might not get the green light after all, following Judge Hasan Hamdan's decision ordering a study on the flight safety and environmental impact of its construction. The National News Agency reported that the Baabda judge tasked Lebanon's Civil Aviation Authority, the Agriculture Ministry and the Environment Ministry with carrying out a scientific study on the impact of the ongoing construction at the east Lebanon landfill.The study is to include the landfill's impact on the safety of incoming and outgoing flights from Beirut's Rafik Hariri International Airport and to determine whether construction meets permissible health and environmental standards.
