HCMC – Over one kilometer of a beach in the central province of Quang Ngai was found covered with curdled oil said to have been washed ashore.

Local residents in Duc Thang Commune, Mo Duc District found the phenomenon late on May 14 and reported it to the local authority.

Nguyen Huu Toi, a local man aged 56, discovered the curdled oil when he was going to catch clams. Some of the oil curdled has the smell of asphalt, he said.

The oil may pollute the beach environment and affect the reproduction of sea creatures as well as the locals’ fishing business, local fishermen voiced their concern.

The local authority inspected the scene on May 15, saying that the black solid waste stretches over one kilometer and is five meters wide.

Le Van Huong, chief of the commune’s Police unit, said the oil would be collected within the day to avoid affecting the coastal line.

Some eight years ago, oil spill had reportedly occurred on this beach.
