TAY NINH (VNS) — Tay Ninh's People's Committee yesterday issued a fine of VND300 million (US$14,000) to Tay Ninh Industrial Park Infrastructure Development Joint Company (JSC PTHT Tay Ninh Industrial Zones) for a problem in the wastewater treatment system of Trang Bang Industrial Park.

The wastewater sample collected from the Industrial Park showed an amount of suspended solids and true color units that was 4.6 times higher than the standard.

JSC PTHT Tay Ninh explained that wastewater produced by Tran Hiep Thanh Textile Company was the major reason for the incident.

The company overloaded the system by producing around 1,000 cubic metres of wastewater per day, leading to the discharge of untreated wastewater.

JSC PTHT Tay Ninh Industrial Zones has fixed the problem and the wastewater now meets standards. — VNS
