Greenpeace claims two canals in Samut Prakan province – near an industrial zone and connected to the lower Chao Phya River – were tainted with hazardous chemicals at a level “high and alarming” enough to affect human hormones and cause cancer.

The environmental watchdog agency conducted the investigation earlier this year into chemical discharges from two textile manufacturing facilities and contamination of nearby canals that flow into the lower Chao Phya.
