TIỀN GIANG – Residents at Dưỡng Diễm Commune in southern Tiền Giang Province’s Châu Thành District claimed that their lives had been affected by bad smells and sewage from a slaughterhouse in the region over the past 30 years.

The facility, which is owned by Nguyễn Hữu Danh, slaughters about 50 pigs every day and dozens of others are kept in cages on the property.

Black smelly wastewater runs from the slaughterhouse to the canal system, pollutting the surrounding environment as well as affecting the life and production of local households.

Đặng Văn Nhiếp, chairman of the Dưỡng Diễm Commune People’s Committee said local residents have complained about the problem many times and the local authority have already given several warnings to the owner, but the situation has not yet improved.

Stricter measures would be adopted by the local authority if the violations continued, he said. — VNS
