Since last week, water levels along the lower Mekong River from Thailand’s Chiang Saen to Lao PDR’s Luang Prabang have been increased significantly, which varied from 0.1 m to 0.36 m. The current water levels are above their long-term averages (LTAs). This trend will continue to increase at the end of March to April 2020. Water levels from Lao PDR’s Vientiane to Pakse have been also increased and reached to their LTAs, except at Nong Khai. The lower reaches from Cambodia’s Stung Trend to Neak Loung on the Mekong River and Koh Khel on the Bassac River will experience this same situation of slightly increasing. For the tidal stations at Vietnam’s Tan Chau on the Mekong River and Chau Doc on the Bassac River will increase, effected by the tidal process.
