Work on the construction of a waste water treatment station at Bay Mau lake in the city’s largest green park started on October 7, helping improve the capital city’s environment.

The project worth 500 billion VND (24 million USD) has a daily capacity of 13,300 cu.m. Facilities of the project are built 13m under the ground in order not to affect the park’s landscape.

Once being completed, the project will serve an area of 217 hectares in the city’s centre with a population of more than 45,000.

After treatment, water will be pumped back into the surrounding lakes of Thien Quang, Bay Mau and Ba Mau, reducing pollution in the lakes, particularly in dry season, as well as in the local Set river.

The Kolon Global Group of the Republic of Korea has won the contract to build the station during a period of 756 days, while Nippon Koei and Viwase provide consultancy services.-VNA
