TAIPEI, Taiwan -- Farglory Group's (遠雄企業集團) shopping mall was fined NT$6 million for discharging wastewater into a creek for the fourth time on record, local authorities said on Monday.

A 100-meter sheet of white foam was found floating in the Kanggaokeng Creek (康誥坑溪) in New Taipei City last Wednesday, according to New Taipei City's Environmental Protection Department (環保局).

Local authorities said they traced the waste to Farglory's iFG Shopping Mall (遠雄購物中心), where foam had spilled from a wastewater tank into a discharge system intended for rainwater.
