Island's water wells drying up
QUANG NGAI – About 500 water wells serving 20,000 people in Quang Ngai's Ly Son Island have become saline due to sea water intrusion or have simply dried out in the prolonged hot weather.
The district's Agricultural Promotion Department said farmers may lose some 70ha of crops as a result.
Local authorities are trying to dredge the wells' beds while also digging new ones. — VNS
