Ca Mau (VNA) – As many as 14,472 households in the southernmost province of Ca Mau are facing a shortage of clean water, more than 8,000 of which are in dire need, according to the provincial People’s Committee’s Office.

In order to deal with the situation, the provincial Department of Agriculture and Rural Development is asked to further invest in water supply facilities in disadvantaged and remote communes.

The province is currently accelerating the upgrading of the water supply system in Bien Bach commune in Thoi Binh district as well as laying 24 kilometres of water pipe in Tran Van Thoi and U Minh districts.

Ca Mau is expected to put into operation three water supply facilities in Nam Can and Tran Van Thoi districts next month.

In the short term, Ca Mau also plans to provide 1,450 tanks of water to disadvantaged and ethnic minority households.-VNA
