Around 7 million m3 of water from Dau Tieng Reservoir will be discharged into the Vam Co Dong River to alleviate salt intrusion, as water shortages affect over 20,000 lives in the Mekong Delta’s Long An province.

Nguyen Thanh Truyen, director of Long An Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, on Tuesday said the water discharge would be carried out in the next few days.

The Southern Irrigation Management One Member company will discharge water from the reservoir to the Phuoc Hoi-Ben Dinh channel in Tay Ninh Province, which would eventually arrive in Vam Co Dong River, around 60 km away.
