NDO/VNA – A new wastewater treatment plant with a daily capacity of 20,000cu.m was officially put into operation in the southern province of Binh Duong on November 30, after 18 months of construction.

This is the third wastewater treatment plant to be built in Binh Duong with investment of over US$115.2 million. It is a sub-project of the World Bank-funded project to build water drainage and wastewater treatment systems in Di An town.

Covering an area of 6.8ha in Tan Dong Hiep ward of Di An town, the Di An wastewater treatment plant is equipped with advanced technologies.

Domestic wastewater taken from residential areas is deodorised and disinfected before being discharged back into the environment, contributing to protecting public health and the water resources in Dong Nai river basin.

The project benefits roughly 40,000 people living in the wards of Binh An, Di An, Tan Dong Hiep, An Binh, and Dong Hoa of Di An town.

Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Deputy Minister of Construction, Phan My Linh, highlighted the significance of the project, saying that it contributes to improving the local water environment and promoting socio-economic development in the locality.

The Thu Dau Mot waste water treatment plant, with a designed capacity of 17,650cu.m per day, became operational in 2013. It had an investment of nearly VND 2 trillion (US$88 million), of which VND1.6 trillion (US$70.4 million) came from Japanese official development assistance (ODA) funds.

Meanwhile, the Thuan An wastewater treatment plant, which is capable of treating 17,000cu.m per day, was put into use in Thuan An town in 2017. It cost nearly VND2.5 trillion (US$110 million), with 85% of investment from Japanese ODA and the remainder from the local budget.
