KHANH HOA (VNS) — More than 2,000 households with nearly 9,000 residents in the central province of Khanh Hoa's Dien Khanh Town are using contaminated water from wells as there is no clean water system.

The chairman of the Dien Khanh People's Committee, Le Xuan Nhan, said that the water system project had not been implemented due to the lack of capital.

As a result, local residents have to use aluminuous and foul smelling water from family wells and the Cai river.

Many have to spend hundreds of millions of dong to dig deep wells to obtain clean water but afterwards the polluted water returns, he said. — VNS
