The Haifa Bay Municipal Association for Environmental Protection has done an insufficient job in managing a region that is filled with explosive, flammable and radioactive toxins, State Comptroller Joseph Shapira argued in a report released Tuesday.

One section in an overall report examining the affairs of various municipalities took a close look at the conduct of the Haifa Bay Municipal Association for Environmental Protection. Established in 1983, the association serves more than half a million people in nine local authorities: Haifa, Kiryat Ata, Kiryat Yam, Kiryat Bialik, Kiryat Motzkin, Nesher, Kiryat Tivon, Zvulun Regional Council and the Rahasim Local Council.

The association is responsible for overseeing air quality control and monitoring, hazardous materials supervision, noise prevention, environmental planning, industrial control, radiation monitoring, transportation pollution and sustainability education.
