The northernmost province of Ha Giang have set the goal of building 293 water storage reservoirs by 2020 to serve local people’s need for water for daily use.
The combined volume of these reservoirs will be enough to supply water for all residents in four districts – Quan Ba, Yen Minh, Dong Van and Meo Vac – in the water-scarce Dong Van Karst Plateau.
The costs of building these reservoirs will come from the Stage budget, the local budget and loans from international financial organisations like the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank.
Since 2007, 84 reservoirs with a combined volume of 406,000 cu.m have been put in operation or are being under construction in the four districts. They are capable of supplying water for 52,522 people or 20.6 percent of the four districts’ combined population.
The number of reservoirs will be raised to 99 reservoirs by 2017 and 293 by 2020.
The four districts have a total area of 2,350 sq.km and are home to 17 ethnic minority groups.-VNA
