Water loss from LMB reservoirs Technical note 1

Water loss from reservoir development in the Lower Mekong Basin

This short technical note describes the effect of reservoir development in the Lower Mekong Basin on water loss derived from evaporation and seepage. Findings translate that the water loss in Cambodia and Lao PDR increases in proportion to the number of proposed reservoirs in 2020 and 2040. Additionally, seepage is a dominant factor of the water loss as evaporation could be compensated by rainfall. Finally, the water loss is considered insignificant when comparing to inflow to the reservoirs.
