The Hanoi municipal People’s Committee has approved a project on building a clean water supply station for Huong Son commune, My Duc district.

The construction of the station, with a designed capacity of 3,500 cubic metres per day, will be kick-started this year.

The total cost of nearly 90 million VND (4.23 million USD) for the work has mainly been sourced from the 2013-2015 National Rural Water Supply and Sanitation National Target Programme funded by the World Bank(WB).

Of the money, approximately 54 billion VND (2.53 million USD) or 60 percent of the total cost is covered by the State budget through the programme and nearly 27 billion VND (1.26 million USD) is from Hanoi’s loan from the WB. The remaining cost will be donated by local people.

Once finished in 2015, the work will benefit nearly 23,000 local people as well as promote the socio-economic development of the locality.-VNA
