​Da Nang to cut water supply citywide for plant upgrade on Sunday

Saturday, June 16, 2018, 15:03 GMT+7

A water shutoff affecting the whole city of Da Nang will take place on June 17 for the improvement of a local utility’s capacity, with residents advised to conserve water for use.

Water access in the central city is scheduled to be cut from 7:30 am to 10:30 am, Ho Huong, general director of Da Nang Water Supply Company (Dawaco), announced on Friday.

During that time, the local Cau Do Water Factory will undergo an upgrade meant to increase its capacity, which requires a complete power cut-off.

“The planned blackout means the facility will have to stop water production, so it is expected that the water supply won’t be completely restored until 3:00 pm the same day,” Huong said.

“People should actively conserve water for use during the outage,” the general director advised.

The upgrade project aims to increase the capacity of the 170,000-cubic-meter Cau Do Water Factory by 60,000 cubic meter a day, with a price tag of VND200 billion (US$ 8.8 million).

It will be followed by the second phase, which will send the total capacity of the facility to 290,000 cubic meters a day.

Dawaco is also actively preparing for the construction of Hoa Trung water plant with a capacity of 10,000 cubic meters a day by the end of this month.
