    Pyongyang, March 13 (KCNA) -- Preparations for the water-way project of Miru Plain in North Hwanghae Province, the DPRK, are progressing apace. It is another gravity-fed irrigation system extending as far as hundreds of kilometers. It will supply ample water to the plain while saving many pumping and power facilities such as water pumps and electric motors and a huge amount of electricity. Its design has already been completed. Now the government is concentrating construction forces on the project for the purpose of completing it in a short span of time. Leading officials in charge of the project are organizing all the work in a bold and ambitious way under difficult conditions, with the result that labor forces, machines and facilities have been rapidly deployed.
    In particular, compressors, electric generators, rails, pipes and other machines and facilities used in the Paekma-Cholsan Water-way project are being swiftly transported to the new construction sites.
    And definite precedence is being given to establishing power and communication networks and building roads.
    Meanwhile, the constructors from across the country are in high spirits. The officials and workers from Pyongyang in charge of the construction of a large-scale reservoir have finished the laying of power and communication lines and now are engaged in the reconfirmation of project amount, survey and other preparatory work. The workers from the Hwanghae Irrigation Construction Company are registering signal successes in removing surface earth of their construction site every day with the stamina with which they completed the project of the main dam of the Paekma Reservoir, a cardinal object of the Paekma-Cholsan Water-way project, ahead of schedule.
    The builders from South Hamgyong, North Phyongan and other provinces confirmed tunneling sites and are transporting and installing necessary facilities. Ministries of Railways, Electricity and Coal Industries and Post and Telecommunications and other ministries, national institutions and units related to the project are taking concrete steps to ensure the machines and materials needed for the project.
