[轉載]華映排放廢水至霄裡溪 CPT pollutes Xiaoli River in Taiwan
Chuanghwa Picture Tubes(CPT) and AUO have discharged wastewater into Xiaoli River in Xinchu, Taiwan since 2000. Problems resulted from ignorance of the downstream drinking water intake point and under-regulated high-tech wastewater therefore surface. The film was shot by local residents who found that their waste water not only stank but also carried a lot of foam, which stayed after merging with another stream. This kind of water threatens safety of drinking water and irrigation.
ps. CPT and AUO have been faced with pressure from locals in Xinchu. They are going to change their wastewater discharge point to another polluted river in Taoyuan County. However, change of positions does not imply that threats also disappear….
