Water discharge coincides in Thua Thien- Hue

Amid to the unexpected weather condition, the Steering Committee on Natural Disaster Prevention and Control of Thua Thien- Hue yesterday asked the provincial hydropower reservoirs to discharge as well as balance water volume to the downstream rivers in order to ensure the reservoirs safety.

The water release aims to prevent from sudden occurrence of huge flood. 

In particular, the Binh Hydroelectric Reservoir released water at 1,500 cubic meters per second to balance water level at the reservoir. 

At that time, the Huong Dien Hydropower Plant also decided to discharge water at 1,500 cubic meters per second to reduce water level at its reservoir from 58 meters to 56 meters while the Ta Trach Hydroelectric Reservoir released water at 300 cubic meters per second. 

Currently, floodwater level on Huong and Bo River is alerted at level 2. 

Medium- heavy rain has experienced the lowland areas of the Phong Dien, Quang Dien, Phu Vang district and communes of Huong Tra and Huong Thuy in the Thua Thien- Hue province. 

Most of inter- village and inter- commune roads were flooded under 0.3- 0.5 meters.
