The project will be implemented in 2015-2020 at a total cost of 11.1 trillion VND (524 million USD), including an Official Development Assistance loan from the World Bank for 450 million USD.

The project comprises three implementation stages, including the construction of a 38ha wastewater treatment plant for the Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe Canal.

According to the municipal People’s Committee, the facility, which is expected to be completed in 2020, will collect wastewater from the entire basin and treat it before discharging the clean water into the Saigon River and Dong Nai River.

The first phase of the project commenced in 2003 and was completed in August 2012, at a total cost of 8.6 trillion VND (421 million USD), with 6.126 trillion VND (294 million USD) coming from World Bank ODA.

The Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe Canal comprises 33km2 and runs through districts 1, 3, 10, Phu Nhuan, Tan Binh, Go Vap and Binh Thanh.

The canal has an important role in managing and preventing flooding, which is a common occurance in the municipality during the rainy season, benefitting as many as 1.5 million residents.
