Natogyi Tsp faces agricultural water shortage despite rain

Despite recent significant rainfall in Natogyi Township, more than 200 lakes and small dams do not have adequate water levels for crop cultivation, Township Administrator U Kyaw Naing told media on 30 July.
Local farmers started nurturing paddy saplings on their farmlands with the use of irrigated water from Khetlan Dam.
Khetlan, Kanna, Myaingtha and Phaungpya dams store water for local consumption but not supply water to farmlands, said Staff Officer U Aung Myint Thein of Township Irrigation Department.
