QUẢNG TRỊ — As much as VNĐ980 billion (US$42.14 million) has been poured into a water supply project in Hải Lăng District, the central province of Quảng Trị.
By the end of 2020, the system will provide 50,000cu.m of clean water per day, for both households and factories in the provincial Southeast Economic Zone and its vicinity including Quảng Trị Town, Hải Lăng and Triệu Phong districts.
The project’s total capacity is 270,000cu.m of water per day. During phase one, implemented from 2019 to 2025, 95,000cu.m of water will be treated each day.
There will be a water pumping station and a water piping system in Hải Lệ Commune, a reservoir of 450,000cu.m and a pumping station in Triệu Sơn Commune, and a water treatment plant suppling 50,000cu.m of clean water and a water piping system in Hải Quế Commune.
Quảng Trị Southeast Water Supply Company, the project’s investor, pledged to design and operate the system following international standards and only use equipment imported from G7 countries.
Speaking at the launch on Tuesday, Nguyễn Quân Chính, vice chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the supply system is one of first three projects launched in the zone, helping to set a foundation for others to follow.
The province’s southeast economic zone was established by the Prime Minister in October 2016.
The zone covers nearly 24,000ha, over three coastal districts in Triệu Phong, Hải Lăng and Gio Linh including Mỹ Thuỷ Port, a non-tariff area and other areas for factories, logistics and tourism services.
It will be connected with the East-West Economic Corridor spanning more than 1,450km through Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Việt Nam via Lao Bảo International Border Gate which expect to boost regional trade exchange. — VNS
