According to Department of Natural Resources and Environment, although more than 6 years of implementation, however, the ratio of wastewater connection of households in areas with waste water collection system in the province is low.

To better manage the water quality of Ba Bo canal, Department of Natural Resources and Environment proposed the Provincial People's Committee to direct the Department of Construction to submit regulations on funding for connection of wastewater to households to the Provincial People's Committee, to facilitate households to connect wastewater to concentrated domestic wastewater treatment systems. Thuan An Town People's Committee strengthened propaganda and mobilized people not to throw garbage or discharge wastewater into the canal area, strictly handle violations; mobilize households located in Ba Bo canal to connect wastewater to concentrated domestic wastewater treatment systems of Thuan An and Di An wastewater treatment plants for treatment.
