PM to launch a water treatment plant in Ctg Sunday
Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina will inaugurate a water treatment plant in Chittagong on Sunday.
Hasina will launch 'Sheikh Hasina Water Treatment Plant' project at a function to be held at Chittagong Boat Club at 3 pm.
The plant has the capacity of producing 90 million litres of water on a daily basis, reports BSS.
Engineer AKM Fazlullah, Managing Director (MD) of Chittagong Water Supply and Sewerage Authority (CWASA), said such water treatment plant in Chittagong will be inaugurated by any Prime Minister after 1988.
Chittagong WASA took up the project in 2006 in order to meet the growing demand for water for the city residents.
Financed by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), the project began in 2010 and went into operation in November 2016.
Thanking the people of Rangunia for their cooperation in implementing the project, the WASA MD also said the water from the project would gradually be supplied to the Upazilas in future.
