The Mandalay Region water Resources and Improvement of River System Department has requested Ks3,658m from the Union government to help prevent soil erosion in seven villages in the region. The call comes after MPs and authorities inspected the seven villages located on the Ayeyawady River, Panlaung River and Myitnge River, all are facing erosion.
“The work is expected to start when the water level falls after the rainy season,” said U Kyaw Myint, Assistant Director of the Mandalay Region water Resources and Improvement of River System Department. Currently, the department is working on emergency prevention against the erosion spending Ks150m allocated by the Mandalay Region Government for the 2016-17 Fiscal Year, he added.
The seven villages are Ywathayar Village in Singu Township, Aidai Village in Madaya Township, Simikhon Village in Myingyan Township, Inn-wa on the Myitnge River, Zaycho Village in TadaU Township and Ohtoketan Village and Ushitpho Village on the Panlaung River.—Aung Thant Khaing
