Meanwhile, the Institute of Natural Resources and Environment are analyzing wastewater samples taken from the company’s reservoir as well as the Dong Nai River. The results will be out within the next 45 days to conclude the level of wastewater being dumped into the river by the company.
Sonadezi Company is suspected of discharging untreated wastewater into the Dong Nai River for the past several years, which has only just come to light this month, by police officials under the Ministry of Public Security.
