The project will be carried out in two phases. In the first phase from 2019 to 2021, seven stations will be installed at a cost of VND65 billion (USD2.7 million). Meanwhile, the rest will be set up in the second phase scheduled to start after 2022.
Hung added that once the stations were operational, people could check the seawater via an app on their smartphone.
