Saline encroachment hits Mekong waters – News VietNamNet

Nguyen Minh Giam, deputy director of the Southern Hydro-meteorology Station, said salination had gone 40km inland in some areas of Tra Vinh Province.

He said this was an abnormal phenomenon. “Normally, salination first appears in February and is of low intensity then,” he explained.

Samples taken at several inspection spots on delta rivers including Dai Ngai, Tran De and Thanh Thoi Thuan showed high content of salt that went inland from the estuaries by 20km to 40km.
