Angkor water tested

Officials are awaiting test results of water from a polluted pond surrounding Angkor Wat, but yesterday said it did not pose a risk to people’s health.

Moa Lao, director of department for temple conservation in Angkor Park, said floodwater had contributed to the pond being muddy and having a repugnant smell.

“Water from the recent floods flowed through many places, taking plants’ resin, before ending up in the pond,” Moa Lao said.

“However, it doesn’t pose any risk to villagers or tourists.”
