Gia Lai suffers from waste pollution

GIA LAI (VNS) — Residents in An Khe Town's Thanh An Commune in the Central Highland province of Gia Lai said they were affected by the stench and waste water from a Gia Lai Livestock Joint Stock Company cow farm.

Nguyen Huu Quang, who lives in Thanh An Commune's Village 3, said the waste water discharged from the farm had flowed into canals and to the Ba River.

The situation worsened when it rained as waste water from the farm spread to rice cultivation areas and fish ponds.
