I remember ...

In all these years lower CÓllora has been descended no more than 3-4 times. This must be due to the explorers' report, describing it as polluted by wastewater and trash.

Over the years, however, the construction of the Roccamandolfi purifier and the change in population's habits have allowed the canyon to become again substantially clean.
