After inspecting erosion that occurred recently along the river in Binh Thuy district’s Tra An ward on June 9, Nguyen Ngoc He, deputy chairman of the municipal People’s Committee, said the embankment should be built soon to safeguard local people and their property and infrastructure.

The work will comprise building a 1.1km embankment and pavements, planting trees and erecting lights.

The 122 families living along that stretch of the river will be relocated.

The place has suffered erosion five times since 2020, affecting 40 houses.

The city is undertaking a number of erosion prevention projects, including an embankment along the Cai Son Canal in Ninh Kieu and Binh Thuy districts and another at the junction of the O Mon River and Rach Tra Canal in Thoi Lai district.

They will be 2.8km and 430m and cost 290 billion VND (12.7 million USD) and 49 billion VND (2.1 million).

Last month the city began building a 950m embankment on the right bank of the O Mon River in O Mon district at a cost of 114.5 billion VND (4.96 million USD).
