BERNAMA – Mekong Delta Explores Ways To Deal With Wastewater Pollution

The Vietnamese government is seeking ways to deal with pollution caused by wastewater discharged from industrial parks in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reported.

During a recent discussion at an international workshop held in Can Tho city, participants were warned that the region is facing a number of adverse environmental impacts such as polluted air and water caused by operations at industrial parks.

The Mekong Delta\’s 120 industrial parks are reported to discharge an average of 47 million litres of wastewater and 220,000 tonnes of solid waste every year.

Only 66 percent of the region\’s industrial zones are built with waste treatment stations.

Head of Southwest Environmental Protection Bureau Pham Dinh Don said environmental protection work in provinces and cities has been ineffective for their failure to follow the region\’s master plan on socio-economic development.
