Rain season hastens family relocations

Update: June, 22/2012 - 09:33

LAI CHAU — Twenty-five households in northern Lai Chau Province will be moved from the basin area for the Ban Chat Hydro-electric Plant to Ta Hua Commune by July, according to Ha Trong Phai, vice chairman of the People's Committee of Than Uyen District.

Authorities requested the district to move all inhabitants in the locality as many of the homes will be submerged when the plant's reservoir fills with water. The water level is already rising, and as the rainy season has begun, the relocation efforts have become more urgent. — VNS
