ABSTRACT
The article reports on the termination of the chief of a local environmental protection bureau and his deputy after a chemical spill in the Xinqiang River near Yueyang City, Hunan Province in China. The potential fatal cocktail of arsenide pollution was reported in September 2006, when random tests were carried out on water quality in the river. The removal of the bureau head and the deputy signal the State Environmental Protection Agency's commitment to raise supervision standards.
