From 21th to 27th May 2019, water levels along the lower Mekong River from Thailand’s Chiang Saen to Lao PDR’s Luang Prabang will be decreased but still staying above their long-term averages (LTAs). For downstream reaches from Lao PDR’s Vientiane to Cambodia’s Kompong Cham, the trends will be the same as upstream part. The lower reaches from Cambodia’s Phnom Penh at Chaktomuk to Neak Luong, water levels will be slightly increasing and stay above their LTAs , following the travel time of flows from upstream and the abnormal rainfall in May 2019 in the floodplain area. For Viet Nam’s Tan Chau on the Mekong River and Chau Doc on the Bassac River, water levels were fluctuated over their LTAs but tracking in different trend, compared to previous years.
