TIỀN GIANG (VNS) – Authorities in this southern province will start constructing a 10km-long pipeline to supply clean water to residents in Tân Phú Đông Island District later this month.

The pipeline, which crosses the Cửu Tiểu River to reach the island district, will cost some VNĐ68 billion (about US$3 million).

The water supply stations in the district are currently out of water, so the province will use barges to provide water to the locals over the next few days.

“We will mobilise all resources to finish the project within 40 days. The locals will have access to clean water by early May,” Director of Tiền Giang Water MTV Supply Ltd. Co Huỳnh Công Dũng said.

The project is expected to serve 35,000 households. – VNS
