VTV.vn - The Mekong Delta region is entering a new saline intrusion. The salinity may be equivalent to that of mid-March. The peak of this salinity period is forecasted from April 8 to April 13.

The intrusion will cover 125 km deep in the Vam Co Dong River and Vam Co Tay.

Salinity will also appear within 40-65 km from the mouth of the Cửa Tiểu, Cửa Đại, Cổ Chiên river, Hậu and Cai river. Localities are recommended to limit irrigation during this period to minimize production losses. It is also necessary to check salinity levels before watering fruit trees of high economic value to avoid any harmful effects on the trees.
