Oct. 29 (Bloomberg) -- Vietnam was awarded $50 million in funds from the World Bank for wastewater treatment plant improvements to help curb pollution at its industrial parks.

At least eight wastewater systems in industrial parks in Nam Dinh, Ha Nam, Dong Nai and Ba Ria Vung Tau, four of the country’s most industrialized provinces, will be constructed with the funding.

Industrial parks discharge as much as 1 million cubic meters of untreated sewage every day, about 70 percent of the country’s total volume of industrial wastewater, according to Vietnam’s natural resources and environment ministry.
