The southern province of Dong Nai plans to invest more than 30 billion VND (1.37 million USD) in installing six automatic wastewater monitoring stations this year, according to the provincial Department of Natural Resources and Environment.

They will be installed in six industrial zones, namely Fosmosa Zones 1 and 2 in Nhon Trach district, Agtex Long Binh in Bien Hoa city, Long Duc in Long Thanh district, Xuan Loc in Xuan Loc district, and Suoi Tre in Long Khanh town.

The stations will observe the operation process of wastewater treatment systems then send data to the Department once every 30 minutes for monitoring purposes.

According to Deputy Director of the Department Nguyen Ngoc Thuong, the province has deployed 22 stations in local industrial zones since 2012 in an effort to protect the environment.

Dong Nai is home to 29 operational industrial zones. All of them are equipped with wastewater treatment systems, and three of them have air sampling systems.-VNA
