A sewage pumping station has been completed in District 8, Ho Chi Minh City, with the capacity of 640,000 cubic meters per day — the largest in the southern metropolis. 

After four years of construction, Dong Dieu Station’s capacity has been increased more than three times from 192,000 cubic meters per day in the first phase, the investor said on Monday.

Other sewage pumping stations in Ho Chi Minh City have smaller capacities.

The facility is now run by three pumps, each with a capacity of 122.1 cubic meters per minute.

One 2,500kVA transformer and one 1,100kVA backup generator wre also installed at the station.

Wastewater from the basins of the Tau Hu Canal, Ben Nghe Canal, Doi Canal, and Te Canal, after being collected at Dong Dieu Station, will be moved to Binh Hung Wastewater Treatment Plant in the same district through a three-kilometer-long sewer.

The pumping station is expected to help reduce environmental pollution in the metropolis and contribute to the completion of the rainwater drainage and flood control systems across an area of about 2,510 hectares in the city’s Districts 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 11, where approximately two million people are living.
