Almost unprecedently low water level in the Danube combined with the authorities' failure to act is causing losses for farmers

The commercial port of Corabia is no longer able to operate because barges full of cereals are stuck on the sand.

The result is that mountains of cereals are standing on the banks of the Danube because there is no more room in the silos. They could be transported by rail or by road, but the costs would be higher.

Trade on the Danube from the port of Corabia has been blocked since the spring, when the water level fell. The only possibility open to traders is to transport cereals by TIR to Constanţa and then export them from there, which entails additional costs.

What instruments are available to the Commission to ensure that the authorities shoulder their responsibility and remedy the situation both economically and environmentally?
