Viet Nam News - - NATIONAL -

HAØ NOÄI — Ser­vice and en­ter­tain­ment busi­nesses in the West Lake area will be closed for a clean­ing and ren­o­vat­ing project, the Haø Noiä Peo­ple’s Com­mit­tee said.

The com­mit­tee as­signed the author­i­ties of Tayâ Hoà Dis­trict to close all ser­vice, tourism, en­ter­tain­ment busi­nesses and farming and fish­ing ac­tiv­i­ties around the lake within the first quar­ter of this year.

The city’s De­part­ment of Plan­ning and In­vest­ment will col­lab­o­rate with the De­part­ment of Con­struc­tion to pre­pare a re­port on an ur­gent wa­ter clean­ing project for the lake, which will be pre­sented to the Prime Min­is­ter. The dis­trict’s com­mit­tee is also re­spon­si­ble for gath­er­ing and re­mov­ing boats, ships, bridges, float­ing plat­forms and other float­ing ve­hi­cles from the lake.

The West Lake has been pol­luted by dis­charge of un­treated wa­ter and the mass deaths of 200 tonnes of fish in Oc­to­ber last year. The dis­trict’s com­mit­tee will col­lab­o­rate with rel­e­vant agen­cies to de­velop a pro­posal on dredg­ing, im­prov­ing land­scape around the lake, treat­ing wa­ter pol­lu­tion and con­struct­ing an en­vi­ron­men­tal mon­i­tor­ing sys­tem, which will be sub­mit­ted to the city’s com­mit­tee. — VNS
