ĐỒNG NAI — Thirty two industrial zones were founded in Đồng Nai Province last month and 30 of them are equipped with proper wastewater treatment plants, the provincial People’s Committee declared on Thursday.
The plants have total capacity of more than 135,000cu.m per day.
At present, total wastewater discharged from the 30 industrial zones was some 96,000cu.m per day, the provincial industrial zones management board said.
To check resources of wastewater from industrial zones, the province has installed 25 automobile wastewater checking stations. The stations are connected with a supervision centre at the Đồng Nai Department of Natural Resources and Environment. The stations transfer information and data to the centre every 5-10 minutes, helping managers keep a close watch on the wastewater and give timely warnings and treatment suggestions.
Võ Văn Chánh, deputy chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the province has been completing procedures to set up six more checking stations at six industrial zones to ensure that by the end of this year, all functional industrial zones had wastewater checking stations. — VNS
