Accompanying him were standing deputy chairman of the city People’s Committee Le Thanh Liem and press agency representatives.
At the construction site, Mr. Nguyen Tang Cuong, chairman of Quang Trung Industry Joint Stock Company, reported to Mr. Nhan that the system has successfully operated. There is only one congestion in the sewer system in the street because of stagnant mud and soil. The company will solve it the next couple of days.
After inspecting items, Mr. Nhan required agencies to work with the investor to carefully examine the pumping system before putting it into official operation.
The system designed with centrifugal pumps moves water from low to high ground at the capacity of 27,000-96,000 cubic meters an hour. Pumps operating with oil or electricity will be connected with the available sewer system of the city.
