The constructions are expected to ensure freshwater sources for families living in outskirt districts of Binh Chanh, Hoc Mon, Cu Chi and district 12.

The department said that the two factories including Kenh Dong 2 and Thu Duc 4 will be respectively finished in 2018 and 2019 with the capacity of 550,000 meters cubic per day.

After putting into the operation, the factories will contribute in increasing maximum water supply capacity from 2.4 million to 2.95 million meters cubic per day.

The city has also called on local residents to use freshwater sources, and reduce the exploitation of groundwater.
