The Dutch Government will provide almost 374,000 EUR for a pre-feasibility study of a project to collect, treat and reuse waste water in Phan Rang-Thap Cham city, the southern central province of Ninh Thuan.

The funding agreement was signed by the Facility for Infrastructure Development ORIO of the Netherlands and the provincial authorities on March 10.

The pre-feasibility study is scheduled to begin on April 1 this year.

The project aims to collect and treat waste water discharged by about 25,000 households and 300 businesses, improve the quality of water in man-made lakes and rivers in the locality, and contribute to protecting the environment there.

It will help the local responsible agencies apply proper waste water treatment technologies and reuse treated water for agricultural production and rural development in suburban areas.-VNA
