Given environmental and health hazards for residents and the obstacle this represents for the economic development of Vietnam, it has become an increasing concern and priority.

The first phase, completed in August 2010, included drainage works in the Dong My, Nam Ly and Dong Phu areas; wastewater collection in Dong My and Hai Dinh Wards; and dredging and embankment improvement works along the Cau Rao River, Phong Thuy Channel and Nam Ly Lake.

As part of the Phase II, Eptisa will continue the flood protection and drainage work commenced under Phase I, further develop the construction of sewers network, interceptors and wastewater collection, build a wastewater treatment plant of 10,000 m3/d aerated lagoon system, and develop an improved system for solid waste management.
