BÌNH DƯƠNG – Bình Dương Province’s Dĩ An wastewater treatment factory opened for operation on November 30 after 18 months of construction.
The plant, which is part of a US$115.2 million project built by Bình Dương Water Environment JS Company, is located in Bình Dương’s Dĩ An Town.
The factory, which covers 6.8 hectares, has a processing capacity of 20,000 cubic metres per day, using advanced processing technologies to preserve the water quality of Đồng Nai River, which supplies water to over 12 million locals, according to Trần Chiến Công, general director of the company.
Rainwater and wastewater from five wards in Dĩ An Town will be treated at the plant. At least 40,000 people are expected to benefit.
More construction is being done on four more pump stations and pipes, as well as a concrete canal lining Lồ Ô stream.
More junction boxes that collect wastewater from households are also being installed. By 2030 the factory will be able to process 60,000 cu.m of wastewater per day.
According to Phan Thị Mỹ Linh, deputy minister of Construction, Bình Dương has a high rate of wastewater treatment, and the operation of the Dĩ An wastewater treatment factory will reduce pollution and improve economic development. - VNS
