Subsequently, the reporters check the area and found that the beach had actually turned green and gave out a horrible contaminated smell. Bubbles, mosses and oil spills have contaminated the shore area. The contaminated beach runs for 1 km from the Dor Sha Da Hotel, small Sea animals were also found dead in that area.

Mr. Somphong Sainapha,Mayor of Chonburi claims that the contaminated water in that area is from the sludge that is discharge by shipping or fishing boats that is dumped into the sea before it is washed by the waves to the shore. The environmental office in Chonburi has coordinated so that the contaminated water could be checked whether it contains any toxic chemicals. It could be from the cassava plant factory nearby which dumped their waste into the ocean. This has made the water in the Dor Sha Da Hotel area to be contaminated. If there are any toxic chemicals in the ocean that have been released by these factories than further investigations and procedures will be held to clear this matter.
