Chinese sewage plant censured for fabricating pollution data

Beijing, Oct 11 (IANS) China’s environment authority on Saturday named and shamed a sewage treatment plant for fabricating pollution data and dumping excessive polluted water.

The plant in Dongguan City, Guangdong Province, has fabricated the pollution volume it treated, inflating the number to gain more subsidies from the government, the Ministry of Environmental Protection said in a statement, adding that the violation was “very serious”.

The plant has also illegally pumped water to its sewers to dilute the waste water and make it “look clean”, according to the statement. Maintenance on its pollution treatment facilities was also under par, reported Xinhua.

The ministry asked the Guangdong environment authority to further investigate the case and transfer those suspected of crimes to judicial organs.
