Applying the Integrated Sanitation Approach in the noodle processing center of Bac Ninh, Vietnam

Wastewater in a Noodle Production Center

The village of Khac Niem, Vietnam has long been known as a noodle processing center. With 161 noodle-producing households, wastewater treatment and management is huge challenge for the municipality.

Through a cooperation to implement a demonstration of the Integrated Sanitation Approach, BORDA and its partner Vietnam Academy for Water Resources (VAWR) are working with Bac Ninh Municipality to improve the sanitation situation and reduce environmental pollution in Khac Niem ward.

Using a combination of hard and soft measures, BORDA-VAWR supports the local government in planning and implementing DEWATS plants to treat wastewater from noodle production and domestic activities. The cooperation also includes repairing and upgrading an existing 400 m3 DEWATS plant.

Solution: The Integrated Sanitation Approach

Along with DEWATS implementation, the Integrated Sanitation Approach in Bac Ninh includes soft components such as operation and maintenance (O&M), monitoring and evaluation (M&E), regulations and policies on O&M for DEWATS plants, and capacity building.

BORDA-VAWR provides Bac Ninh Municipality with technical assistance and capacity building for faecal sludge treatment and management (FSM), repairing and upgrading the ward’s sewage system, and implementing biogas digesters at the noodle producing households.

In the first year of the demonstration project (2017-2019 phase), BORDA-VAWR and Bac Ninh Municipality signed a Memorandum of Understanding to officially establish the cooperation, engaged in detailed planning, and took concrete steps towards repairing and upgrading the existing DEWATS plant.

Together with Bac Ninh Municipality, BORDA-VAWR is implementing an Integrated Sanitation Approach pilot project in Bac Ninh’s Khac Niem ward for the phase 2017-2019
