A paper production company in the northern mountainous province of Bac Kan has continued to discharge untreated waste water into the Cau River despite having been fined in late August, causing concerns for local residents.
Under observation of a Vietnam News Agency correspondent on Thursday, Bac Kan Forestry Products Joint Stock Company continues to discharge black-coloured waste water directly into the Cau River in Duc Xuan Commune, Bac Kan Township.
The frothy water had a terrible odour and is polluting a large section of the river.
