    Green group keep up pressure on Disney

    Environmentalists continued to lambast Hong Kong Disneyland Friday even though the fallout from its fireworks tests fell within permitted limits.

    According to the results submitted to the Environmental Protection Department Friday, the noise levels during the fireworks rehearsal on August 8 reached 53 decibels compared with 48.7 decibels the previous day. The maximum level was 55 decibels.

    As for air pollution, the highest measurement of respirable suspended particulates (RSP) on August 8 was 26 mg/m3, well below the statutory RSP criteria of 180 mg/m3.

    The survey was conducted in response to a request by the EPD after results from a fireworks trial in May were criticized as being flawed.

    However, critics insist the tests are inconclusive over the long-term for accumulated air pollution.

    ``The readings were measured under weak wind, and the analysis spanned just one day,'' said Mei Ng, director of the Friends of the Earth.

    Ng accused Disneyland of seeking to fulfill only the minimal requirements.
