A water supply company in Da Nang has proposed a VND410 billion (US$17.7 million) project on constructing a salinity prevention work combined with a bridge.

The Da Nang Water Company (Dawaco) sent a document to the municipal People’s Committee and People’s Council on Thursday, suggesting that the project be added to the city’s development plan for the next 10 years.

The project will include the construction of a salinity prevention work integrated with a bridge measuring 294 meters long and 12.75 meters wide.

The integrated construction, which is estimated to cost VND410 billion ($17.7 million), will help save investment capital and provide convenient operation.

The quality of treated water will be boosted, while water resources will also be sufficient for agricultural production along the Cau Do and Cam Le Rivers, according to Dawaco.

The raw water input of water plants in Da Nang mainly comes from the Cam Le River.

However, the waterway has been affected by serious saltwater intrusion over the past years, posing high risks of water scarcity in many areas of the city.

Dawaco has built a temporary dam to mitigate the effect of salinity, but a long-term solution is still necessary.
