QUANG NAM (VNS)— Central Quang Nam Province has requested the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development for VND40 billion (nearly US$2 million) to construct drought prevention works, according to the provincial People's Committee.

The city has suffered a serious lack of water for agricultural production since the beginning of the year with only 20 of the 73 reservoirs having full levels of water.

The city also carried out measures to prevent drought such as dredging the Vu Gia and Thu Bon rivers, installing hundreds of pumping stations, and setting up temporary dams in the Quang Hue riverhead. —VNS
