The system is expected to collect and process at least 70 per cent of the province’s urban wastewater at 14 treatment plants. Wastewater pipelines and pumping stations will also be constructed.

Quang Ngai Province People’s Committee has approved the project’s first phase in Quang Ngai City with an investment of VND300 billion ($12.9 million).

The province has suffered severe pollution for years. Local residents living around Quang Phu Industrial Zone in Qusng Ngai City have complained several times about untreated wastewater being discharged directly into nearby streams.

 

The MD Solid Waste Treatment Plant in Duc Pho District, in February 2019 was reported to have received trash to process while the plant's construction has not been totally completed and emission standards not met, negatively impacting people’s health and triggering public uproar.

In October 2019, local authorities announced the removal of the plant after it treated some 22,500cu.m of solid waste but still the local residents disagreed with the decision. — VNS
