Myingyan District Commissioner U Myint Thin Aung and township officials inspected maintenance work on Kanna Lake in Nahtogyi Township on 6 October. They inspected the parapet wall being built around the lake and the construction of the crest drain and guard posts.
The water intake of the lake is 4,658 acre-feet, which can irrigate 2,720 acres of farmland.
Since Mandalay Region got little rain this year, a villager said the lake would fill after only one or two nights of rainfall.
