Waste water kills fish till 30 April

Waste water drained out by the industrial zone caused death of fish in Taungthaman Lake in Amarapura Township, Mandalay, till 1 May.
As the industries from the industrial zone did not purify the waste water before throwing it into Payantaw Creek, fish in the lake were dead due to lack of oxygen.
“As of 11 April, lake workers gathered dead fish in the lake. On 30 April, plenty of dead fish floated in the western part of the lake. We have informed Mandalay City Development Committee of killing fish in the case. At present, lake officials spread lime and raw salt in the lake as part of minimizing death of fish,” said an official of fish breeding farm in the lake.
Fishermen lost more than 200 viss of fish worth hundreds of thousands of kyat.
Owners of the fisheries industries in the lake buried the dead fish.–Aung Ye Thwin
