Cambodia: Mekong River Dredging Causes Major Concerns

The Sahrika reports that around 50 villagers in Kandal province protested yesterday in an attempt to stop the sand dredging operation on the Mekong River.

“The activity of sand dredging has severely affected our villagers’ lands and houses,” said village representative Tuy Phy.

Kandal province residents believe that the Mekong River sand dredging has allegedly resulted in the collapse of riverbanks in the Kien Svay district.

“To protect villagers’ lives, their houses and their lands from collapsing into the river, we asked the barge to stop dredging sand from Koh Prak village from now on,” concluded Phy.
