Improvement of the Siem Reap River Project (APSARA/Municipality/Korea Eximbank):

The Experts:

a. Acknowledge the fact that this project uses the same methodology as the one used for the already rehabilitated portion.

b. Recommend waste to be removed from the riverbed and banks before opening the provisional sand dam. [Unfortunately, this action could not have been carried out, as the dam was opened on the day of the experts’ visit, more or less three hours after they left the site].

c. Recommend working closely with the APSARA Water Department for flow regulation and water management.

d. Recommend working closely with the APSARA Urban Department for the landscaping of the riverbanks and in particular of outstanding trees.

e. Recommend a proper management of the overall intervention.
