After the Ayeyawady River rose to its danger point at the sluice gate near Ngabatchaung village in Myanaung Township from 24 July to 6 August, local residents and officials of the Irrigation Department participated in maintenance of the embankment.
“In accord with the guidance of the president on his inspection tour of Ayeyawady Region, Township Irrigation Department plans to improve the embankment,” a staff officer said.
During the flash flooding period in August, local residents from Shwekyin village-tract moved to Htoo village-tract. Officials opened relief camps at monasteries in Htoo village to accommodate the flood victims. Residents returned home on 7 August.
The Myanaung embankment is roughly 49 miles long, running from Taikkyi village in Kyangin Township to Lutawsu village in Ingapu Township.
