    Shanghai Garbage Poured Into Taihu Lake | 上海的垃圾倾倒于太湖内
    Date/Time: 2016/07/11
    Synopsis:
    Suzhou authorities confirmed that the eight suspicious vessels covered with tarps that were spotted in Jiangdong Village last week were actually carrying 4,000 tons of garbage from Shanghai. Their payloads of mixed construction debris had been secretly poured onto Suzhou's Xishan Island (Taihu Lake). The ships that carried the garbage have been detained in Suzhou, and police are investigating the matter further. Taihu National Tourism Resort environmental and public security departments have been inspecting both the dump site and the vessels, found to have originated in Shanghai's Jiading district. EPA sampling of the water near where the garbage was dumped did not reveal any contamination but authorities plan to continue to monitor the site. Locals say that this is not the first time that Shanghai companies have used the Suzhou area as a rubbish dumping ground.
     
    苏州官方已确认,位于西山岛蒋东村码头停靠用篷布盖好的8条船只,共装载约4000吨疑似生活垃圾(夹杂建筑垃圾),欲倾倒至戒毒所内废弃宕口堤岸上。装有垃圾的船只现已被警方扣留,相关部门正在进行进一步调查。太湖国家旅游度假村环境和公共安全部门在对倾倒地点和船只进行调查后发现这些船只来自于上海嘉定区。在倾倒点附近所作的水质采样化验结果显示水质并未被污染,但相关部门仍将继续监测该地点的水质。
