Update: February, 14/2012 - 10:02

QUANG NGAI — Binh Thuan Commune in central Quang Ngai Province's Binh Son District has seen large numbers of dead fish surfacing over the past four days, according to Nguyen Quang Huy, Chairman of Commune's People's Committee on Sunday.

Huy said bio-ethanol Dung Quat factory under the PetroVietnam Central Biofuels Joint Stock Company (PCB) had been found discharging untreated waste into the local environment, which had caused widespread fish deaths.

Authorities have requested the factory stop discharging waste water directly to residential areas. — VNS
