Quang Nam to harness Vu Gia River waters

The A Vuong Hydropower Joint Stock Company (AVC) and the Department of Irrigation in the central province of Quang Nam have jointly worked out a plan to harness the waters of the Vu Gia River to combat the annual devastating effects of the dry season.

The two sides have agreed to use this water body to effectively help the low lying areas to fight drought and salt intrusion during the driest months of the year.

The A Vuong Hydropower Plant will reduce and control its capacity to release water for agriculture irrigation in the low lying areas in accordance with requirements dictated by the provincial Irrigation Department and the Department of Agriculture and Rural Development.

According to AVC, the water level in the A Vuong reservoir is expected to fall to its lowest level in recent years.
