The Environment Public Authority (EPA) on Thursday denied reports about hydrogen sulfide leak in several areas in the country.
In a press statement, the EPA emphasized that what has been circulated by some social media networks in this regard is untrue.
No rise in hydrogen sulfide gas was detected in Al-Salam, Al-Qurain and Al-Rumaithiya, the three stations close to Sabah Al-Salem area, it confirmed.
The highest reading recorded in Al-Salam station was 13 parts per billion (ppb), it added, noting that the reference number is 100 parts per billion (ppb).
The authority appealed to all people to be accurate when publishing information so as to avoid legal accountability.
