They open the gates everyday in rainy season, sometimes two or three times. I know because the siren is so loud it hurts your ears!

The area where I live is flooded totally, but house is built up high so we are ok - although we are supposed to be moving out Tuesday anyway (which doesn’t flood).
Strangely town isn’t that bad. Just north of the bridge seems to have been effected.

In related news.
Lol. My landlord (who has kicked us out), who moved in next door because the occupants had enough of flooding, drove his car (new Nissan) out and the water was about three qtrs up the wheel. Impressive although I thought he should at least get a bow wave going.
Anyway. We drove out and the neighbors told us to cut through their place. Fine by us.
We get to the road and there’s the landlords car! Abandoned. He’s even got the electrics wet or water locked his engine. Karma!
A twist is he used to have a big diesel 4x4 but got rid because “Too old”.

:lol:

Sorry to hear that. What's the plan?

Kidnap. Ransom. Torture. Release.

Is the dam the cure for the flooding or the reason?

The reason for the intensity of the flooding, but flooding in Cambodia is normal. The country is shaped a bit like a frying pan in terms of elevation. Flooding is generally good, it provides silt which enable 2-3 crops of rice a year without the need for fertilizer.

Worse results from dams are extinction of fish species and reduction of silt. I saw a documentary on NatGeo last night, apparently over 600 species of fish

It's rice growing season now though, so rice fields in the region have been wiped out by the floods no?

That's the case in my ladies village anyway.

Speaking of rice fields, how many square KM of rice fields have been filled in the Kampot region over the last two decades?

The water has to go somewhere....

?

Off the meds?

Nobody's apologising for the Chinese. We're talking about how opening the DAM floodgates affects flooding, not how Chinese construction in Poopsville affects it.

Try and keep up,
