HCM City Flood Protection Projects Include Dredging

Ho Chi Minh City will pump an estimated $505 million into 84 projects in an attempt to reduce floods over the next five years, according to the Viet Nam News.

The plan was introduced at a conference held last Friday by the city’s Flood Prevention Agency and HCM City National University.

This capital flood protection scheme will include dredging and upgrading the Tham Lương-Bến Cát and Rạch Nước Lên Canal with a total length of 32 kilometers, which is expected to help the city drain water for around 14,500 hectares.

Other top priorities include dredging of the 8.2 km Xuyên Tâm Rivulet; building eight sluices to control tides and flooding; and construction of nearly 20 kilometers of dykes along high-prone sections of the Sài Gòn River.

The city has already implemented programs in response to climate change as it expects increasingly severe flooding in the coming years, the Viet Nam News informs.

The conference heard several solutions from scientists and experts to cope with the flooding.
