Increasingly severe pollution is attributed to the widespread discharge of household trash and wastewater into rivers and canals. The department has proposed the city authorities speed up the construction pace of sewage treatment plants so as to cope with the situation. Pollution in the Ba Bo Canal is serious despite the city’s effort to reduce it. Local residents still release untreated wastewater into the canal, leading to a 64-fold increase in the content of pollutants such as organic matters and coliform, and a 2.7-fold rise in surface pollution. As for industrial sewage, many enterprises in Tan Phu Trung Industrial Zone have not connected their wastewater systems to the central system of the zone. They instead emit hazardous wastewater into Thay Cai-An Ha Canal. The environment department suggested the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development take strong measures to deal with water pollution by animal farms, especially along the Saigon River. Authorities should also put under control emissions of plant protection drugs and fertilizer.
