Ninh Binh (VNA) – Most waste water in the northern province of Ninh Binh will be treated once a 416 million VND (18.7 million USD) drainage and sewage treatment plant is put into operation at the end of this year.

Covering an area of 10.8 ha, the plant is the first of its kind in the city. It has a capacity of 15,000 cubic metres a day. It is a sub-project of a master work on the national urban water supply and wastewater, implementing in 10 provinces and cities nationwide, using funds from the World Bank (WB).

Besides the plant, the project also built 25.5 km of drain pipe, which will collect rainwater and wastewater in the city; a large scale pumping system; and a 200-gas pit system to gather sewage. After being filtered, the treated water will run into the Vac and Van rivers.

Deputy Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Duong Duc Khanh said the untreated sewage settlement is a pressing issue. The project will help reduce environmental pollution in the locality.-VNA
