Nampho-Pyongyang Seawater Pipeline Project Completed
Pyongyang, April 30 (KCNA) -- The Nampho-Pyongyang seawater pipeline project was completed in the DPRK.

Leader Kim Jong Il unrolled a plan to bring seawater from Nampho to Pyongyang for solving the issue of drinking water for the citizens of the capital city and providing good conditions for their cultural and emotional life. When its first phase project was wound up, he showed deep loving care and trust in the model units, officials and other working people engaged in the project.

The dear respected Kim Jong Un acquainted himself with the second phase project of the Nampho-Pyongyang seawater pipeline in December last year and clearly indicated the orientation and ways for completing the project on the occasion of the centenary of the birth of President Kim Il Sung.

Officials and other working people, scientists and technicians carried out vast tasks for laying pipelines extending more than dozens of km and constructing seawater reservoir, pond and pumping stations in a matter of one year.

The completion of the project makes it possible to bring great benefit to the country by disinfecting water by seawater and satisfactorily supply seawater to the Pyongyang Dolphin Aquarium and the Aquarium in the Central Zoo and thus contribute to the cultural and emotional life of the people.

A commissioning ceremony was held in Waudo District, Nampho City on Monday.

Addressing the ceremony, Choe Yong Rim, member of the Presidium of the Political Bureau of the Central Committee of the Workers' Party of Korea and premier of the DPRK Cabinet, said that the seawater pipeline is a valuable fruition of Kim Jong Il's idea of believing in people as in Heaven and Kim Jong Un's noble view on the people and a laudable structure demonstrating the spirit of self-reliance.

He underscored the need to successfully manage and operate the pipeline and thus make a positive contribution to providing better living conditions to the citizens of the capital city.

The participants went round the seawater intake pump station after being briefed on the roadmap of the pipeline.
