HCMC to boost tap water supply to suburban district linking with Mekong Delta

A project worth VND925 billion ($40 million) has been launched to upgrade HCMC pipeline system to provide water to Binh Chanh District.

The pipe with a diameter of 1-1.5 meters will start at the intersection of Vo Van Tan and Tran Van Giau streets in Binh Tan District and run 12 kilometers (7.45 miles) all the way to Nguyen Van Linh Street in Binh Chanh.

The investor, Saigon Water Corporation (Sawaco), Ho Chi Minh City’s main water supplier, said the exisiting pipe system in this area is small with a diameter of 0.3 meters. Besides, Binh Chanh lies at the end of the water supply network, with local residents having suffered from weak water flow or even no water during peak dry seasons in March and April.
