Since late November, affected by the dry season, the water level above the dam of the hub has been kept below 28 meters. In recent days, due to the needs of project construction, the hub’s outbound flow has increased to 700 cubic meters per second. The low water level is expected to last until early next month. The waterway management department reminds passing vessel owners to make reasonable stowage plan for the sake of its safe navigation.
