Quang Tri (VNA) – A total of 980 billion VND (42.14 million USD) has been poured into a water supply project in Hai Lang district, the central province of Quang Tri.

By the end of 2020, the system will provide 50,000cu.m of clean water per day, for both households and factories in the provincial Southeast Economic Zone and its vicinity including Quang Tri town, Hai Lang and Trieu Phong districts. 

The project’s total capacity is 270,000cu.m of water per day. During the first phase, implemented from 2019 to 2025, 95,000cu.m of water will be treated each day.

There will be a water pumping station and a water piping system in Hai Le commune, a reservoir of 450,000cu.m and a pumping station in Trieu Son commune, and a water treatment plant suppling 50,000cu.m of clean water and a water piping system in Hai Que commune.

The Quang Tri Southeast Water Supply Company, the project’s investor, pledged to design and operate the system following international standards and only use equipment imported from G7 countries.

Speaking at the launch on October 15, Nguyen Quan Chinh, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee, said the supply system is one of first three projects launched in the zone, helping to set a foundation for others to follow.

The province’s southeast economic zone was established by the Prime Minister in October 2016.

The zone covers nearly 24,000ha, over three coastal districts in Trieu Phong, Hai Lang and Gio Linh including My Thuy Port, a non-tariff area and other areas for factories, logistics and tourism services.

It will be connected with the East-West Economic Corridor spanning more than 1,450km through Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Vietnam via Lao Bao International Border Gate./.
