The Quang Tri Department of Natural Resources and Environment is assigned to supervise the dumping and assess environmental impacts of the activity in these two areas. After five years, the department will further conduct environmental impacts and biodiversity studies in the designated areas to report to the provincial people’s committee to consider licensing other areas for mud dumping.

Organisations and individuals need to conform to regulations on the waste mud dumping.

Several coastal localities in Vietnam, including Quang Ngai and Quy Nhon, have allowed the dumping of waste mud in coastal waters.
