Saltwater intrusion in southern Vietnam might peak in April, May

April 01, 2024

Saline intrusion in Vietnam’s southern region is forecast to be at its peak in April and May, exceeding the levels recorded in the same period last year, according to the National Center for Hydro-Meteorological Forecasting. The center urged all localities in the region to take drastic action to fight the salinity intrusion. Specifically, residents should amass fresh water for irrigation and their daily activities amid the increasing intrusion of salt water. Coastal localities were advised to invest in water management infrastructure to block fresh water from flowing into the sea. Residents should enhance the ‘living with saline intrusion’ approach by resorting to salty water to farm suitable crops.
