Vast majority of Prey Veng households now have access to clean water

Prey Veng provincial officials in charge of rural development have announced that just 22 per cent of Prey Veng residents are still without access to clean water, accounting for more than 50,000 households.

Lok Vuthy, director of the provincial department of rural development said on August 12 that clean water supply in Prey Veng had notably improved. Currently, there are nearly 200,000 wells, a community water distribution centre, and 31 clean water producing facilities supported by partner NGOs.

He said nearly 230,000 household have toilets – or 94 per cent of the whole population – while more than 10,000 or 6 per cent have access to shared facilities.

He added that since May 17, 100 percent of households in the province have access to toilets, thanks to the support of several institutions, including the authorities, the private sector and development partners. Progress was facilitated by the ministry of rural development, the provincial rural development department and the provincial administration.
