DAK LAK (VNS) — The canal linked to Serepok 4A Hydropower Plant in Dak Lak Province ran into breakage problems yesterday afternoon, submerging dozens of rice paddies and agricultural produce.

The breakage measured around 50 meters each side, while Buon Don District authorities were working to draw up the final cost of the damage.

A technical representative from subcontractor Serepok 4A, Buon Don Hydro Power Joint Stock Company, said that sustained heavy rains over several days had caused water rising levels at Serepok River.

Repair efforts to the canal were completed yesterday.

The Serepok 4A hydropower plant has a design capacity of 64MW and supplies around 308.35 million kWh a year to the national power grid.—VNS
