As planned, the water plant daily capacity will reach 300,000 cub.m. of water in 2019, 600,000 cub.m. by 2030 and 900,000 cub.m. by 2050.
The first phase of the plant was put into operation on the occasion of the 64th anniversary of the Capital’s liberation – October 2018, providing about 150,000 cub.m. of water per day.
Once fully completed, the plant is expected to continue providing clean water to residents in northeastern and southern areas of Ha Noi, and some adjacent areas in Bac Ninh and Hung Yen provinces.
