Takeo villagers rail against dirty pond

More than 400 families from Takeo province’s Koh Andeth district have accused a market tax collector of disposing of rubbish in a storage pond used for drinking and cooking water, villagers said on Monday. “The villagers here don’t have a well, so they are depending on this pond,” said Et Khoy, a local representative, who warned that they would face serious health problems if the authorities didn’t act. District governor Sam San said the pond was well-constructed, but that overflow might be a problem in the rainy season.
