PHNOM PENH — A clean water treatment plant started operating on May 24, supplying ample clean water to two districts of Stung Treng province, the project having been funded through a credit loan from the Asia Development Bank (ADB).
According to the Stung Treng Administration, the raw water pump station has a pumping capacity of 13,500 cubic meters per day, and the clean water treatment plant can produce 12,000 cubic meters per day.
According to Senior Minister of Industry, Science, Technology and Innovation Cham Prasidh who oversaw the launching ceremony, the plant capacity is more than the demand for water, which is only 8,000 cubic meters per day, meaning that the clean water supply will be able to be shared with Sesan and Thala Borivat districts.
Loy Sophat, deputy of the Stung Treng Constituency, agreed that the water treatment plant will provide clean and adequate water for the people of Stung Treng Province.
Another project will be discussed with the Asia Development Bank under the Urban Water Supply project, that of clean water being supplied to the 1,700 households of Siem Bouk District, which will require an additional budget of nearly $4 million.
Currently, there are three clean water supply services provided in the province: in Stung Treng city, Sesan District, and Thala Borivat District.
