      My team is doing energy and are determining the feasibility of a hydroelectric system but we can not find any information on the flow rate of the river. Does this information exist and if so where can it be found? Thanks, Ansel

        Hi Ansel,

        Unfortunately, we do not have baseline data on the river’s flow rate in Pu Ngaol village. If you’re considering the feasibility of building a micro-hydropower system, look at this example on the O’Porng Morn Kraom River in Stung Treng, a province adjacent to Mondulkiri. This resource may also help you assess the potential of hydropower in the area.

        Also, keep in mind that the stream flows can fluctuate depending on the season, so flexibility in design is essential. Explore our Interactives: 360° Site Walkthroughs to see the river surroundings, specifically look around the suspension bridge.

        I hope this helps.

        Regards,
        Jean

          Hi Jean,
          I had another question regarding river data, is there any more data in regards to the dimensions of the river? My team is specifically looking for the range of depths and widths of the river in wet and dry seasons. Is there any more information available beyond the river can reach 3m deep in wet season and 50m wide?

          thanks, Axel

            Hi Axel,

            Unfortunately, we don’t have any additional information about the river’s dimension in changing seasons. However, we described how water level changes in these seasons in our Interactives (for example, vehicles can cross the river during the dry season). In your project, you may design with this approximate range of water level fluctuation as a baseline information.

            I hope this helps.

            Regards,
            Jean
