Kandal Drinking Water Contaminated With Fecal Matter, Study Says

A study of drinking water sources in Kandal province found widespread contamination from human excrement, posing a health risk to residents that likely mirrors the situation across Cambodia, the authors say.

Published last month on the website of the Journal of Water, Sanitation and Hygiene for Development, the study also documented the first recorded appearance in Cambodian water supplies of a type of cyanobacteria that can produce toxic algal blooms.
