The first phase on the Nhon Trach water supply in the southern province of Dong Nai became operational in late March.

The plant cost 2 trillion VND (95 million USD), and was funded by Japanese ODA, according to Dang Trong Thanh, Director of the Dong Nai Water Supply Company.

With a capacity of 100,000 cubic metres per day, it is expected to supply clean water to Tam Phuog and An Phuoc communes in Long Thanh and Nhon Trach districts.

The project was approved by the Prime Minister and began construction in 2008.-VNA
