Water supply project for Thilawa SEZ, townships nears completion


The Lagunbyin water supply project, which aims to distribute 40 million gallons a day to the Thilawa Special Economic Zone and six Yangon townships, is now 90-percent complete, the Yangon City Development Committee said.
New infrastructure, including channels, wells and an electric sub-station, will carry water from Lagunbyin Dam in Helgu region to the four Dagon Myothit townships, Thakayta and Dawbon townships, and the SEZ.  A resident from Dagon Myothit Seikkan Township said those living in new townships face a range of difficulties. “If we get water from the project, we can overcome one of those difficulties,” he said.
The YCDC supplies 205 million gallons of water each day to Yangon City from the Gyobyu, Pugyi and Hlawga reservoirs, as well as the two Ngamoeyeik water treatment plants.
The YCDC is implementing further projects to increase water supply, which still falls short of demand in the city.–Kyemon-001
