HCM City – The second phase of HCM City’s Tân Hiệp water pumping station began operation yesterday with a daily capacity of 300,000 cubic metres.
The plant, situated on a 3.2 hectare site in Tân Hiệp Commune, Hóc Môn District, cost VNĐ1.2 trillion (US$54 million).
It supplies fresh water to the 12 districts of 5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12, Gò Vấp, Tân Bình, Bình Tân, Tân Phú, Bình Chánh, and Hóc Môn.
The city’s seven pumping stations now have a total capacity of 2.1 million cubic metres and fully meet its needs.
By 2020 two more pumping stations will be built to meet the growing demand as the city’s population increases. — VNS
