Storms require heavy spending on dykes
TRA VINH (VNS)— The province's Department of Agriculture and Rural Development will allocate VND72.5 billion (US$3.5 million) to repair and consolidate 24 sea dykes, in the hopes of coping with and reducing damage sustained during the flood and storm season.
The costal communes of Cau Ngang and Duyen Hai will have nine new sea dykes built and others repaired by the end of this month.
The provincial People's Committee has also requested the reconstruction of 15 dykes and jetties at Tra Cu, Cau Ke, Cang Long communes and Tra Vinh City by this November. — VNS
