Water sources expanded in HCM City
An additional 27,775 households in HCM City had access to clean water as of the end of May, raising the total number of local households with running water to 1,523,600.
At least 81.3 per cent of total households in the city now have tap water, Nguyen Thanh Chung, director of the HCM City Department of Transport, said.
To ensure clean water supply for all households in HCM City, the city will invest in Tan Hiep 2, Kenh Dong 2 and Thu Duc 4 water plants in 2016, 2018 and 2019, respectively.
The new facilities are designed to supply an additional 850,000 cu.m of clean water per day and increase the city's total water supply capacity to 2.95 million cu.m per day.
The implementation of water supply projects in districts 8, 9, 12 and Hoc Mon is progressing well, according to local authorities. However, water supply stations in the outlying districts of Cu Chi could fall behind schedule because of prolonged bidding procedures.
