Reservoirs for freshwater in the Mekong Delta

In a previous article, it was indicated why the construction of medium and large reservoirs in the Mekong Delta is essential to meet the needs of its inhabitants. Let us first recall some facts and their consequences concerning the exploitation of water resources in the Delta

Are higher seismic safety standards required for dams forming dam cascades along rivers?

Along major rivers, several large dams have been built or are being built, forming dam or runof-river power plant cascades. The cascades could consist of concrete or embankment dams or run-of-river power plants depending on the longitudinal profile of the river

Some comments on the report of Mr Ho Ta Khanh

The report is a clear presentation of this key problem: it focuses on the need of fresh water and underlines the likely future of two rather new solutions: Construction of large off river reservoirs and large coastal reservoirs; they are thus commented below.

From labyrinth to piano key weirs: the story

Labyrinth weirs are an efficient solution for free surface flow whose development has been initially favored by a close collaboration between research and industry in the United States

Shortage of fresh water and necessity for storage facilities in the Mekong Delta (M.D)

Abstract: The Mekong Delta (M.D) is submitted to many important issues that can question its survival. To mitigate severe shortages during the dry season, freshwater storage and decrease in groundwater use are paramount for its survival.

Secondary Processes Associated with Landslides in Vietnam
