The central province of Binh Dinh and the Belgian Development Agency started construction of a water supply plant in Phu Cat district on February 24.
The project is being built at a cost of 8.95 million EUR, of which 7.5 million EUR was funded by the Belgian Government, and the remainder was sourced from the provincial budget.
Once finished by the second quarter of 2013, the plant will supply water to 84,000 people in five communes of Phu Cat district and two communes of Tuy Phuoc district with a daily capacity of 5,600 cubic metres.
It will also pump water to schools, medical centres and public buildings in seven local communes.
The plant is part of a water supply and hygiene project for Binh Dinh province which aims to reduce poverty and improve community health in six of 11 districts and communes of the province through building irrigation, water supply and solid waste treatment works from 2009 until 2014.
