HANOI, Nov. 24 — Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung approved a plan to develop clean water system for urban areas in the country from now to 2025, said a report on the government website on Tuesday.

Under the plan, the country targets that all households in urban areas will be permanently provided with clean water by 2025.

To reach the target, Vietnam will focus on maximizing the potentials of surface water and exploit the underground water at an appropriate level, said the plan.

The exploitation of underground water at big cities like Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh will be gradually reduced.

Vietnam aims to treat from 70 percent to 80 percent of waste water in urban areas by 2025, according to the plan. (PNA/Xinhua) LBV/utb
