Estonia Environmental Issues:
The country of Estonia has environmental issues concerning air and water. The air in the northeast is polluted with sulfur dioxide from oil-shale burning power plants. However, the amount of pollutants emitted to the air has fallen steadily, as the emissions of 2000 were 80% less than that of 1980. Estonia's coastal seawater is polluted in certain locations. In addition, the country has more than 1,400 natural and manmade lakes, of which the smaller (in agricultural areas) need to be monitored. However, in connection with the startup of new water purification plants, the pollution load of wastewater has decreased. The amount of unpurified wastewater discharged to water bodies in 2000 was one twentieth the level of 1980.
