Rural residents dredge drain to improve farm irrigation

Dredger

Local residents are dredging a drain between Thabyetha and Minbar villages in Kanbalu Township, Sagaing Region, as part of a self-funded project to improve farmland irrigation.  The drain will carry water from the feeder canal of Karboe Dam to a 700-acre expanse of farmland. The villagers provided K40 million for the dredging, a local resident said. A 7,500-foot section of the 12,500-foot drain has so far been completed.–Aung Win Nyein (Kanbalu)
