More than 5,830 rural households across the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho will gain access to clean water from eight supply facilities by the middle of this year, as the result of a World Bank-funded project.



This is part of a large project on water supply and rural environmental sanitation in the Mekong Delta region, funded by the World Bank until 2016.


From now to 2020, the city plans to build 182 clean water facilities with a total capacity of 112,000 cubic metres per day, install 2,800 kilometres of new water pipes and dig thousands of wells, in order to help all locals access sanitary water.



Meanwhile, water plants in the city will also be upgraded to meet the increasing demand of local people.
