Dong Dieu sewage pumping station’s capacity has been increased more than three times from 192000 cubic meters per day in the first phase to 640000 cubic meters per day, said Director of the Transportation Works Construction Investment Project Management Authority of Ho Chi Minh City Luong Minh Phuc yesterday.
According to Mr. Phuc, the sewage pumping station is the largest in the southern metropolis. The sewage pumping station will collect wastewater from the basins of the Tau Hu Canal, Ben Nghe Canal, Doi Canal, and Te Canal. Then collected wastewater will be moved to Binh Hung Wastewater Treatment Plant in the same district through a box culvert system with the total length of 3600 meters.
The pumping station is expected to help reduce environmental pollution in the metropolis and contribute to the completion of the rainwater drainage and flood control systems across an area of about 2510 hectares in districts 456 810 and 11 where approximately two million people are living.
The facility is now run by three pumps, each with a capacity of 122.1 cubic meters per minute. One 2500kVA transformer and one 1100kVA backup generator were also installed at the station.
The project has a total investment of VND617.8 billion (US$ 2672 million).
Before, the investor has completed the first phase of Binh Hung plant with the capacity of 141000 cubic meters per day. As per schedule, the completed construction of Binh Hung Plant’s second phase will be operational in the second quarter of 2021 to help increase the capacity to 469000 cubic meters per day.
