HCMC gets Japan aid to upgrade drainage system

Van Nam

HCMC – Japan will provide around VND300 billion out of the total VND323 billion (US$14.1 million) needed for a project to upgrade an aging water drainage system in HCMC.

In a report sent to the Ministry of Planning and Investment, the city said the project would upgrade deteriorating sewers in the downtown area to prevent roads from caving in and minimize environmental pollution.

The HCMC Steering Center of the Urban Flood Control Program, the project owner, will repair and rehabilitate 4,000 meters of sewer in districts 1 and 3 between 2017 and 2020.

The city will need VND97.3 trillion (US$4.26 billion) for flood control projects in the 2016-2020 period and has arranged nearly VND23 trillion of the total for projects under way. The city looks to raise the remaining VND74.35 trillion in the next four years.

The city’s population is over 10 million people, excluding migrants. Fast population growth here has caused a five-fold increase in wastewater discharge volume, putting huge pressure on the current drainage systems.
