The Mekong Delta city of Can Tho on August 31 inaugurated a clean water supply facility for rural residents in Vinh Thanh district.
Covering 10,000 square metres, the system has a capacity of 2,600 cubic metres per day.
Built with an investment capital of 470,000 USD funded by the Republic of Korea (RoK)’s Ministry of Environment and other sources worth 24 billion VND (about 1.1 million USD), the facility will benefit over 5,530 households in Thanh An, Thanh Thang and Thanh Loi communes.
Addressing the ceremony, Vice Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Dao Anh Dung described the works as an example for cooperation between Vietnam and the RoK, saying it actively contributes to new-style rural building in the locality.
He asked the local Rural Environmental Sanitation and Clean Water Centre to manage the facility effectively.
