HÀ NỘI — Japanese carp, often called Koi, and Vietnamese carp will be released into the Tô Lịch River and West Lake in Hà Nội next Monday.
The fish will be released by the Japan Trade and Environment Promotion Organisation and their partners including the Hà Nội Department of Natural Resources and Environment, the Hà Nội Department of Science and Technology and the Hà Nội Sewage and Drainage Company.
The fish will be let out in two parts which have been treated for pollution.
On May 16, the Hà Nội water sector started a pilot programme of cleaning a part of the Tô Lịch River and West Lake with Nano-Bioreactor technology. Then, the parts were assessed to have improved. Assessments show the water in the areas is cleaner.
Next Monday, Japanese and Vietnamese water experts will take samples to assess results of the pollution treatment in the river and the lake. — VNS
