The decreased water level will vary from -0.01 m to -0.04 m. From Lao PDR’s Vientiane and Thailand’s Nong Khai, water levels will slightly increase, followed the same trend from upstream and vary from 0.02 m to 0.04 m. From Thailand’s Nakhon Phanom to Lao PDR’s at Pakse, water levels will be slightly increased, varying from 0.02 m to 0.04 m. From Cambodia’s at Stung Treng to Neak Loung on the Mekong River, water will slightly increase, varies from 0.03 m to 0.09 m.
