Sea embankment to protect Vietnam’s southern most tip

The first phase of the sea embankment project to prevent landslides in the southern most Mekong delta province of Ca Mau is now complete after nine months of construction.

Nguyen Long Hoai, head of the Irrigation Department said on Monday that the 668 metre long embankment had been completed and would help prevent further landslips from occurring in most of the highly vulnerable zones in the province.

Construction units will fortify the embankment even more with huge amounts of soil and mangrove forests, which will be planted to prevent further erosion of the area.

Various organisations in Ca Mau Province are working with the construction units to find measures to cope with landslides in two of the remaining kilometres of the southern most tip of the country, which have not been protected so far by the embankment.
