At this time, Vinh Long Water Supply Company is primarily operating in the fields of manufacturing and trading water, bottling water, construction consulting, installation of infrastructure works, and investment in water supply projects. The company is managing and mining eight water supply systems with total capacity of 48,000 cubic metres per day; the company is also expanding into the business line of bottled water products with 5,000 litres per hour.
 
Despite the recent difficulties due to the economic crisis, the leadership of Vinh Long Water Supply Company, with its creativity and determination helped the company to achieve the annual targets beyond expectation. With its efforts, the company has contributed to the improvement of the infrastructure of the water supply system, which helps increase the number of water users and raise awareness of the people about saving and using water efficiently.
 
Up to now, the company's water supply network has covered 96 percent of nominated areas at the rates of 91 percent of total capacity or 130 litres per person per day with water supply during 24 hours; the water quality meets the national standards. Pursuant to the Decree 117/2007/ND-CP of the Government on the production, supply and consumption of water, Vinh Long Water Supply Company has signed an agreement to supply water for local areas in the province. According to this agreement, the company will provide clean water to meet daily needs, production and services in these areas, including the industrial zones in the province.

Environmental pollution leading to contaminated rivers causes high costs and difficulties in producing clean water. Such difficulties always make leaders and staff of the company work hard to supply clean and safe water and safe for consumers.
