HA NOI — Ha Noi needs VND116.4 trillion (US$5.5 billion) for flood works over the next 20 years.
According to the city's draft drainage scheme, flooding in the city should be mostly overcome in the next two years.
Rivers in the city, such as Nhue, Hong, Day and Tich, will be dredged to improve drainage capacity.
The city will also set up separate treating systems for waste-water and rain-water to prevent rivers from being polluted. — VNS
