Clean water project wraps up in Lai Chau

A plan to provide more people with access to clean water in Lai Chau town, northern Lai Chau Province is set to wrap up next week.
    The entire VND141.3 billion (US$8.8 million) project, funded by the Norwegian and Vietnamese Governments, will wrap up on May 26 and treated water will be available to the public on June 1. The plan was originally set to be completed at the beginning of 2009 but was kicked off early.
    The first phase saw expansion of the previous water storage container from 70cu.m to 1,000cu.m. An additional 3,400m of pipes was also built, as well as a water treatment system worth VND3 billion ($187,500). The system has the capacity to treat 3,000cu.m of water per day.
    The treatment system will provide 3,500 customers in the area with clean water.
