The southernmost province of Ca Mau’s largest freshwater reservoir is scheduled to be put into operation next month to serve 11,000 households.

Work on the VND248 billion (USD9.92 million) reservoir located in Khanh An Commune in U Minh Ha District was started in 2022 and it covers 102 hectares and has a 3.85 million cubic metres capacity.

According to Ca Mau Department of Agriculture and Rural Development Director Phan Hoang Vu, roughly 82 percent of the project has been completed and the remaining work was slated to be finished in May.

The reservoir benefited from World Bank Official Development Assistance and will serve people in Tran Van Thoi and Thoi Binh districts.

Over the past month, residents in the Mekong Delta region, including Ca Mau, have struggled with water shortages due to the prolonged drought. People had to buy clean water at high prices.

The hot weather has been forecasted to last in the region for another 10 days. The rainy season will begin in the region in May.
