P Si­hanouk author­i­ties stop drainage fill­ing

The Phnom Penh Post - - NATIONAL -

AUTHOR­I­TIES in Preah Si­hanouk prov­ince’s Prey Nop dis­trict on Tues­day stopped the fill­ing-in of a canal that serves as wa­ter drainage. Prey Nop dis­trict’s ad­min­is­tra­tion chief Prom Bunny said on Tues­day that three trucks, a bull­dozer and a roller were im­pounded in the op­er­a­tion. Bunny said of­fi­cials went to in­spect the site on Wed­nes­day and or­dered the owner to dredge the soil out of the canal. “We don’t know whether the owner had re­ceived per­mis­sion, but we have not per­mit­ted any fill­ing-in of the canal or lake. The owner would need to solve the mat­ter, oth­er­wise we will take le­gal ac­tion,” he said.
