Mekong River basin enters rain, flood season

The Southern Institute of Water Resources Research today informed that the Mekong River basin has entered the beginning of the rain and flood season in 2021. 
Last week, the Mekong Delta provinces and cities suffered from average rainfall of 30 mm, especially in the Ca Mau peninsula.

The significant rains along with the massive volume of water flowing into the Mekong rivers have resulted in the salinity reduction.

The water volume in the 2020 – 2021 dry season flowing into the Mekong Delta in the period from February to May was higher than average many years because of the regulation of hydropower reservoirs and the early appearance of rains in the Mekong River basin in April and May.
