Japan-funded water treatment plant operational in Binh Duong

(VOV) - A plant funded by Japanese ODA capital and designed to treat the wastewater from Binh Duong province’s Thu Dau Mot City entered into operation on May 31.

Binh Duong Water Supply-Drainage and Environment One-Member Company are the plant’s two primary investors.

The project, which is due to benefit 13,000 local residents, will help improve the water environment, protect the environment and improve the livelihood of residents in the southern part of the province.

The first phase of the project, costing nearly VND2,000 billion, was mainly invested by Japan’s official development assistance (ODA).

After two years of construction and a successful trial period, the Ministry of Health certified the plant as meeting the national type A standard.

The project was designed to treat 70,000cu.m. of waste water per day.

Work is continuing on the second and third phases of the project, based in Binh Duong province’s Thuan An and Di An towns.
