LAI CHAU — More than 1,700 local households around Lai Chau Hydro-electric Plant will be evacuated in the first quarter of next year in the northern mountainous province of Lai Chau.
The households are planned to move to 35 resettlement areas in Muong Te District.
Systems of tap water and road construction are expected to begin in October and finish before the households resettle in the areas.
The construction of the US$1.7-billion Lai Chau Hydroelectric Plant began in January 2011 and is set to finish in 2017. — VNS
