First water level monitoring station opens atop lower Mekong basin
The Mekong River Commission (MRC) has unveiled the Xieng Kok water level monitoring station in Laos that’s expected to reduce downstream vulnerability to unexpected flows. The station sits on Laos’s northern border with Myanmar. The commission handed the station over the Laos government to operate and provide related parties with relevant data.
The stations also aim to equip the four MRC governments (Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam) with enough information to craft effective policies that benefit their riparian societies
