WATER RESOURCES AND ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING
Vietnamese Version

The Mekong delta (MD), the most downstream part of the Mekong river, is known as the biggest "rice bowl" of Vietnam.

The Delta has a population of about 18 million inhabitants living in 4 million hectares of land. All the people living in the Delta have to depend totally on the water resources, mainly the surface water, for domestic drinking, crop irrigating, fish and shrimp raising, goods transportation and industrial production.

As a general rule, any increase in industrial and agricultural activity from upstream may affect to water quality problems more or less in the downstream.

Hence, the research and information concerning Water Resources and Environmental Engineering are necessary. This part includes individual writing documents, papers, information pages collected from books, newspapers, and the Internet for the following topics:
