HCMCES-II is including the three components: Wastewater interceptor (8km) to transfer the wastewater and drainage from the network of the Nhieu Loc – Thi Nghe basin and wastewater from a separate network in District 2 to a WWTP; Wastewater Treatment Plant, with a capacity of 480,000 m3/day and Investment support and institutional development, including the update of the MCMC sewerage master plan. Since the project areas are prone to flooding it is important to know how these flood risks might affect the viability and long term sustainability of the project. This knowledge can then be used to propose mitigating measures or design conditions in order to reduce the vulnerability of the WWTP and the interceptor.

The main objective of this study is to ensure that engineering designs and site plans and future operations of the infrastructure financed by the HCMCES-II project are robust and resilient to floods.
