Two textile dyeing factories fined for pollution
Jun '11
In a recent drive, the Bangladesh's Department of Environment (DoE) has charged two textile dyeing units in Gazipur for polluting water of Makhash Lake in Konabari area of Joydebpur. The DoE imposed a penalty of nearly four million Tk on the two polluting units.

The owners of these units were also directed by the DoE to set up effluent treatment plants (ETP) within next couple of months. In the event of failing to comply with the condition, the owners of the two units would have to face arrest, and the gas and electricity connections of their factories would be severed, the DoE said.

During the drive, the DoE's enforcement team found the two units discharging chemical mixed water into a nearby canal which flows into the Makhash Lake, and thus endangering the environment.

The first factory was penalized Tk 2.918 million, while the second was penalized Tk 1.085 million. Both these units were running without any ETP or environmental clearance since 2003 and 2004 respectively.

According to the DoE, prior to this drive, the two units were served a number of notices to stop discharge of waste water and to set up an ETP, but the owners did not pay any heed.
