Taihai Networks, Jan. 4, according to the Haixi Morning Post, the approval failed. Xiao Wang (pseudonym) thought of a "magic trick" to build an electroplating workshop in a small village in Tong'an, which directly discharged heavy metals into the ground, causing serious pollution. Recently, Xiao Wang was sentenced to 9 months'imprisonment and a fine of 30,000 yuan by Tong'an Court for the crime of polluting the environment.
Xiao Wang, a native of Jiangxi Province, is engaged in the electroplating industry. He has always wanted to build an electroplating plant. However, he failed to obtain administrative permission because of strict environmental protection approval. Xiao Wang can't wait to make money. In August 2014, he rented a plot of land in Tong'an Xiyang Village and built a workshop for electrophoretic processing of iron parts.
On April 1, 2015, environmental law enforcement officers received a report. When they came to the scene for investigation, they found that the small workshop was very concealed, the internal facilities were simple, and even the basic wastewater treatment facilities were not available. Raw materials and processed products are piled up in disorder. More importantly, the wastewater from dilution solution of hydrochloric acid produced during the processing and the water for cleaning iron parts are mixed and discharged directly into the ground through hidden pipes. Through on-site sampling and monitoring, the contents of total nickel, total chromium and hexavalent chromium in the floor water of the workshop exceeded the standard.
On August 14, 2015, Xiao Wang, who was well aware of the responsibility of the crime, volunteered to surrender to the public security organs and confessed to the facts of the crime.
