The capital city of Hanoi will focus on wastewater treatment systems in all industrial parks by 2020 as part of its efforts to enhance environmental protection.

The municipal People’s Committee has ordered the Department of Natural Resources and Environment to examine the environmental impact assessments of operating projects in the city.

Meanwhile, investors must work to handle wastewater that can pollute and damage the surrounding environment and local livelihoods. All of the measures must be made in compliance with national technical standards. In addition, they must declare and pay fees for environmental protection.

The capital city is now home to 18 industrial parks with a total area of nearly 3,441 hectares. There are 89 industrial complexes in the city, 43 of which are operating stably and 46 others have just completed their infrastructure systems.

According to reports from relevant authorities, wastewater treatment plants have been built in nine operating industrial zones while construction of 21 stations in 43 industrial complexes has been completed. However, of the 21 only 10 stations with combined capacity of 10,800 cubic metres per day are operational.-VNA
