BÌNH ĐỊNH — The Việt Nam Maritime Administration (Vinamarine) and authorities of central Bình Định Province have agreed to not to dump 300,000cu.m of waste mud into the sea and instead use it for another project.

The mud was dredged from the province's Quy Nhơn port to allow large vessels to enter the port.

Instead of dumping the waste into the water, it will be used to build Đầm Thị Nại Villa and eco-tourism area.

The information was announced by an official from the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment on Tuesday, Dân Trí online newspaper reported.

The dumping of the dredged mud at the local sea is likely to affect the marine environment, he said.

The environment department and other agencies have asked the Vinamarine to find alternative ways of disposing of the waste mud.

Earlier, Vinamarine submitted the proposal to the provincial authorities for waste dumping.

Residents in the area are concerned dumping will not only negatively impact the habitat and growth of aquatic products, but also affect the marine environment, especially Quy Nhơn City’s tourism area. — VNS
