TAY NINH (VNS) — Most waste-treatment facitlies in the southern province of Tay Ninh are overloaded, causing environmental pollution, according to the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment.
Existing facilities have a capacity to treat 5,000cu.m of waste a day, but the total produced is up to three times higher.
The department said garment and textile factories using dyes were to blame.
Local authorities said they would order the owners of industrial zones to build their own waste treatment systems before making any discharges into common waste treatment facilities. — VNS
