river level

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

Indeed, I read this great piece about the impact already, and it sounds very bleak for poor Cambodians

It doesn't look good at all. The water and electrical shortages earlier this year were disruptive enough but now we are likely facing a much bigger problem.

Cambodia,,,, Don't fall in love with her.
Like the spoilt child she is, she will not be happy till she destroys herself from within and breaks your heart.

Is this being reported in any local news outlets to locals? I haven't heard Khmer people talking about it yet...

Yeah I mentioned it last year, but I sense we haven't seen the end of the water/power cuts during the dry season either.
