HUNG YEN (VNS) — The northern province of Hung Yen's People's Committee has fined a local company more than VND120 million (US$5,700) for violating environmental regulations.
The Beeahn Viet Nam Co., Ltd's wastewater was found to have exceeded the regulated standards by ten times, leading to the pollution of the water source in the neighbouring residential area.
The People's Committee also asked the company to halt the disposal of the wastewater immediately and to implement wastewater treatment, conforming to national standards, before resuming its disposal.
Two months ago, another local company, Tuan Cuong Plastic Co., Ltd, had been fined about VND220 million (US$10,500) for the same offence. — VNS
