    ” On the afternoon of the 16th, law enforcement officers from the Environmental Supervision Brigade of the Environmental Protection Bureau of Changsha County came to the scene.

    According to an online post, villager Wang Liulin built a 400-square-meter warehouse along his house and leased it to Maslet Coating Factory in April this year, mainly producing water-based paints such as wall primers and topcoats.
    The toxic gas and waste water produced in the production process of the paint factory are directly discharged without treatment.
    On October 31, the villagers filed a complaint with the Changsha County Environmental Protection Bureau.
    After law enforcement officers arrived at the scene to investigate and deal with it, “the paint factory simply dug two large pits in the warehouse and drained the sewage directly into the pits.


    "There is sandy soil under the warehouse, and the sewage will endanger the source of drinking water after being immersed in the ground.
    " Villager Li Jun (pseudonym) is not far from the paint factory and is greatly affected by pollution.
    At 3 pm on the 16th, a reporter from the Xiaoxiang Morning News came to the back of the paint factory.
    A drainage ditch with a width of about 80 cm was near the side of the plant.

    Tan Yang, a shareholder of Maslite Paint Factory, said that in early April, the villagers’ warehouses were rented to set up factories.
    After being investigated and punished by law enforcement officers, two sedimentation tanks were built in the production workshop to prevent sewage from being discharged.


    "The production water is recycled, and only hand-washing water is discharged into the sedimentation tank.
    " Tan Yang said that the bottom of the sedimentation tank is sealed with cement, and there is no possibility of waste water being discharged outside.
    In response, Liu Zhigang inspected the drainage ditch and said, “The water on the side of the wall in the ditch is milky white, which proves that there is wastewater seeping through the foot of the wall.
    The more downstream the water becomes clearer, it can be seen that the sewage has indeed penetrated into the ground.
    The villagers’ worries are normal.
    "


    Liu Zhigang said that as early as July 8th and October 31st, after receiving complaints from villagers, law enforcement officers conducted on-site environmental monitoring of the Maslaite paint factory and found out that the factory had not gone through the environmental protection approval procedures, and started construction without authorization.
