Businesses on West Lake to close for cleaning
HAØ NOÄI Service and entertainment businesses in the West Lake area will be closed for a cleaning and renovating project, the Haø Noiä Peoples 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 citys 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 districts 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 districts 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 citys committee.
