It seems that this new chemical spill has been stopped by the use of a dam. It seems that a large quantity of Cadmium was depostited in the river by a state-owned smelting plant. The plan is to dilute the levels of cadmium until they are safe. Another state owned enterprise in a spillage disaster, hmmm.

On a linguistic point, there seems to be a touch of "the HIV Virus" and "WTO Organisation" to the reports in the west - the slick having happened in the "Bei Jiang River". So, the Bei River River. Interesting name, no?
