HÀ NỘI – Inspections of three apartment buildings found the water quality did not meet the Ministry of Health’s standards, Võ Nguyên Phong, deputy director of Hà Nội’s Department of Construction, said.

 Following complaints about the water quality from the residents of these apartments, Nguyễn Đức Chung, chairman of Hà Nội’s People’s Committee, instructed the relevant agencies to investigate.

 A joint inspection team, including representatives of the department of health, the Ministry of Public Security and Hà Nội Water Supplying Company, took water samples for testing.

The three apartment buildings inspected were Sông Hồng Parkview at 165 Thái Hà, CT9 in the Định Công urban area and CT6A in the Đặng Xá urban area.

The test results for the three buildings indicated that the source of the water met legal standards, but the water in the underground tanks did not, Phong said.

 He blamed the project investor and management of the building for the poor quality of the water.

 The Hà Nội Department of Construction has requested the relevant agencies to present solutions to settle the problem, ensuring that high-quality water is provided for households.

 To prevent a reoccurrence, Hà Nội authorities plan to hold a meeting with the leaders of 16 districts and the management units of apartment buildings in the city to monitor the water quality in the water tanks. — VNS
