ĐÀ NẴNG — Two more construction projects in coastal Sơn Trà and Ngũ Hành Sơn districts of Đà Nẵng have been found discharging untreated wastewater into the city’s household sewage system. 

The head of the city’s construction department inspection team, Lê Văn Tuấn, said the hotel project of the Vietnam Holiday Company and the Sea Shore Hotel of Chinwin Company had illegally pumped wastewater from their on-going excavation of basement floors into the city’s household waste treatment system. 

Tuấn said the wastewater from these projects would pollute the popular beaches of Ngũ Hành Sơn and Sơn Trà districts. “We asked the two investors to stop discharging wastewater into the city’s sewage system before an assessment of the wastewater at the two sites are approved,” Tuấn said. 

He added that the department will carry out additional inspections of all construction projects in the coastal area. 

Last week, the 27-storey Royal Era 1 Hotel was caught discharging untreated wastewater from its construction site into Mỹ Khê Beach. The project investor, TMS Hotel Đà Nẵng Joint Stock Company, was fined VNĐ6 million (US$265). — VNS
