CAN THO (VNS) — The Can Tho Centre for Clean Water and Sanitation in Rural Areas is building eight pumping stations that will be finished by the middle of this year to supply water to 5,830 households.
The World Bank is funding them as part of a programme called "Water supply and sanitation in Mekong Delta" targeted at increasing the ratio of households getting water to 100 per cent by 2020. It was 92 per cent last year.
To achieve the goal, 182 pumping stations with a total capacity of 112,000cu.m per day will be built, 2,800km of pipelines will be laid and another 300km improved, and thousands of wells will be dug. — VNS
