Construction of a wastewater treatment plant expected to relieve environmental impacts of wastewater from Mandalay Industrial Zone kicked off at a designated place in Amarapura Township yesterday.
The plant is designated to treat wastewater from factories and plants in the zone as they are unable to create their own plan to carry out the wastewater treatment process, said U Tun Kyi, Mandalay City Development Committee member-6. The plant construction project is set to be implemented in two phases— construction and installation of wastewater treatment systems— at Taung-inn Myauk-inn area in Amarapura Township of Mandalay Region.
The project has now kicked off the construction phases following an agreement in 2013 between the MCDC and Hydrotek Supreme Mandalay Co., Ltd which is conducting environmental impact assessment for ensuring the release of a report on environmental management plan by the Environmental Conservation Department. Upon completion of the plant, treated water will be released into the Dokhtawady River.
