Salt water intrusionSalt water intrusion
Intruding salt water source into Long An is mainly from the East Sea through Soai Rap estuary due to the semidiurnal tide regime.

The East Sea tide in Soai Rap estuary has amplitude of high from 3,5 to 3,9 m. The process of intruding salt water is deeper and longer into the inland. The reason is the strong operation of tide, northeast wind, less water from upstream and especially many exploitations of surface water in dry season. In the past, Vam Co Tay river had been intruded by salt water in Tuyen Nhon of about 5 km, since 1993, it has reached to Vinh Hung. The salinization has started from January to June with 2 - 4 gam/liters. The salinity of Vam Co Dong river has gradually reduced by the influence of Dau Tieng lake.

Besides, the earth tends to be hotter, facilitating sea level raising, developing the salinization deeply to inland.

The salinization has changed the ecological system of region which has been stable for many years, resulting in the influence to production and daily life of people. To reduce this process, should not exploit too much in dry season and the investment in irrigation systems should consider the impact of salt water intrusion on the general ecological system.

Water sourceWater source
Water source:
Long An has Vam Co Dong River and Vam Co Tay River and the interlaced system of canals and ditches connecting with Tien River which is the main water transmission and irrigation line. However, this water source is limited and contaminated with saline and alum, therefore, the water fails to meet the production and domestic demands.

The groundwater deposit in Long An is also not various and the quality is poor, mainly found at the depth of more than 200 meter. The ground water contains many ion to harden the water and reduce the quality of the water. The main water source ​​is the surface water from lakes, rivers. The clean water program funded by UNICEF supports to drill some wells in the areas with water shortage.

 Water supply:

Communication System​ supply system of Long An running through the flow of Vam Co river, Vam Co Dong River and Vam Co Tay River is also contaminated with saline and alum.

Long An is supplied with the clean water from Tan An Water Plant with the capacity of 15,000m3/day for the residential areas in the center of Tan An City and the neighboring areas. Up to now, thanks to the investments from many different capital sources such as State Budget (strategy program, program 135), loans, Unicef capital, OECF capital, all towns in the provinces are supplied with clean tapped water. The percentage of households accessing clean water accounts for 77% with the total number of 1,085,634 people.

In the rural areas, the domestic water supply source is depending on the available water sources with untreated water, therefore, the quality and hygiene of water are not yet ensured. The clean water program funded by UNICEF can only help more than 50% of the population of the province access the clean water.

 Drainage/sewerage:

The majority of the urban areas and residential areas have not yet provided with the complete drainage system. Domestic wastewater and rainwater are directly discharged to the surface water source through the traffic culverts. The province has not yet constructed the drainage and wastewater treatment system separately. The total km of the culverts is only 10.5% of the total length of the roads. The demand for the future investments for the drainage and sewerage systems is very high, especially for Tan An City, towns, small towns and other centers in the province.

 The program to mobilize all resources to construct the traffic, power, water infrastructure system serving for the industrial development has been implemented synchronously by Long An Province at all levels, sectors

 Progress of water supply projects:

Natural condition Characteristics of geological structure in Long An provinceNatural condition Characteristics of geological structure in Long An province
Long An is located in the South Eastern edge of Da Lat zone. This is independent tectonic - metallogenetic zone, with foundation of Precambrian continental crust, subsided in early – middle Jura and experienced epicontinental regime in late Mesozoi.

The East Sea tide in Soai Rap estuary has amplitude of high from 3,5 to 3,9 m. The process of intruding salt water is deeper and longer into the inland. The reason is the strong operation of tide, northeast wind, less water from upstream and especially many exploitations of surface water in dry season. In the past, Vam Co Tay river had been intruded by salt water in Tuyen Nhon of about 5 km, since 1993, it has reached to Vinh Hung. The salinization has started from January to June with 2 - 4 gam/liters. The salinity of Vam Co Dong river has gradually reduced by the influence of Dau Tieng lake.

Besides, the earth tends to be hotter, facilitating sea level raising, developing the salinization deeply to inland.

The salinization has changed the ecological system of region which has been stable for many years, resulting in the influence to production and daily life of people. To reduce this process, should not exploit too much in dry season and the investment in irrigation systems should consider the impact of salt water intrusion on the general ecological system.

At the end of Mesozoi and in Kainozoi, Da Lat zone was activated forcefully. In Neogen – Quaternary, this region involving Mekong basin was subsided forcefully and filled up by terrigenous sediments . In Long An province, it mainly developed formations of sediments of Neogen Quaternary:

Sediments of conglomerate, sandstone, clay siltstone of Can Tho formation (N21ct) have large area of allocation.

Gravelstone, sandstone, siltstone, claystone of Nam Can formation (N22nc) have large area of allocation.

Long An - Historical landLong An - Historical land
Long An has not only the simple and rustic beauty of the Mekong Delta region but also a historical land associated with the glorious feats of the ancestors.

1. In the first days of the year, we had the opportunity to go with the delegation to visit the relics of the Party Committee Base - Southern Resistance War Administration Committee (in Bui Thang hamlet, Nhon Hoa Lap commune, Tan Thanh district). This is one of the three most important bases of the South during 9 years of the resistance war against the French colonialists. The site was classified as a National Historic Site by the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism in 2007.

The Party Committee Base - Southern Resistance War Administration Committee

The spacious campus area of the base is 3 hectares, including the residence of comrades Le Duan, Pham Van Bach and Tran Van Tra; Office of the Southern Resistance War Administration Committee, the Southern print workshop and Pharmaceutical preparation room. All are rebuilt from locally available materials such as clay, straw, bamboo, mangrove, and so on. These materials can withstand enemy artillery. The relic also have the tombs of Mr. Nguyen Van Sieu and Mrs. Tran Thi En, traditional houses, exhibitors, etc. Surrounding the area are lush flower gardens that are cultivated by local people.

Thanks to the story of Mr. Nguyen Van Sieu's grandson, we reviewed the important events of the history associated with this monument such as the place where the Congress of the Southern Party Committee of the Southern Party was held, the first place of Southern Radio was broadcasted, the place where the documentary film about the first film revolution of our country was shown, and many famous battles that terrified colonialists. It was also associated with the glorious feats of Battalion 307, 309; Regiment 120, 105, etc. 

2. Leaving this historic site, the delegation visited the Historic relics of Long An province (also known as Binh Thanh Historical relics, in Binh Hoa Hung commune, Duc Hue district). This is considered the base of the people, which marks the period of operation of Long An Provincial Party Committee.

Binh Thanh Historical relics

At present, Binh Thanh historical relics no longer have specific architectural works. For that reasons, Long An province invested nearly  183 billion VND for the construction of major items such as restoring and preserving the original relics of the base, working place; building memorial works, parks, landscapes and other infrastructure items; restoring the natural ecosystem as before to help visitors can visualize the landscape of the base area.

Nowadays, Binh Thanh Base no longer hears the sounds of bombs and smoke of war. On the contrary, visitors enjoy a peaceful space with rows of green bamboos and the sound of birds chirping. This is a place converging the best traditional values of patriotism, strong spirit and firm belief in the final victory of the Party Committee and people of Long An province under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

3. Back to Tan An City, our delegation continued to visit Nguyen Huynh Duc Temple and Tomb (in Khanh Hau Ward). This was the last location of the "Returning to our roots" journey at the historic sites in the spring days. The site includes an architectural complex of the tomb of the early Nguyen Dynasty with valuable antiques in the late XVIII and early XIX centuries. In addition, we also knew the life and career of a famous general Ba Giong land. General Nguyen Huynh Duc is worshiped as a predecessor by the people. In 1993, the tomb was recognized as a Historical-cultural relic.

Nguyen Huynh Duc Tomb

Currently, the tomb is kept and protected by his lineage. Upholding the family tradition, the descendant of Nguyen Huynh Duc has many successful people who contribute to building the homeland.

At the end of the journey, our delegation learned about the process of revolutionary activities and the glorious feats of the previous generation to help today's generations appreciate the value of life./.

Brackish water and ground water resources  Brackish water and ground water resources 
The large river system of Long An province connecting with Tien river and Vam Co rivers system is important loading ways and drainage for production as well as for daily life of people.

Vam Co Dong river starts from Cambodia, through Tay Ninh province and to Long An province: area of basin of 6.000 km2, the length through province of 145 km, the depth of 17 - 21 m. Thanks to water source passed from Dau Tieng lake with the flow of 18,5 m3/s, it supplements the irrigation for Duc Hue, Duc Hoa, Ben Luc districts and reduces the process of salinization of Vam Co Dong river through Soai Rap estuary. Vam Co Dong river connects with Vam Co Tay through horizontal channels and connects with Sai Gon, Dong Nai rivers by Thay Cai, An Ha, Rach Tra channels, Ben Luc river.

Vam Co Tay river with the length through province is 186 km, water source is mainly received from Tien river through Hong Ngu channel, satisfying the demand of irrigation for agricultural production and daily life of people.

Vam Co river with 35 km long, 400 m wide, emptying into Soai Rap estuary and flowing to the East Sea is the confluence of Vam Co Dong and Vam Co Tay rivers.

Rach Cat river (Can Giuoc River) situated in Long An province is 32 km long, with a small water flow in dry season and poor water quality due to receiving waste water source from urban area - Ho Chi Minh City, having a great effect on production and daily life of people.

In general, surface water source of Long An is not abundant, the quality of water is inappropriate in certain respects. Therefore, it does not meet the requirement of production and life.

According to assessment, reserves of ground water of Long An are not abundant and their quality is different and quite poor. Most of ground water source is in the depth from 50 - 400 meters under 2 horizones, Pliocene – Miocene.

However, the ground water source of province has many useful minerals which are exploited and served for daily life of people in the whole country.

In heavy rain or flood, with hurricane tide, it has often occurred flood in regions along the banks of river, especially lowland. To exploit efficiently surface water resource in Long An, in addition to channel expansion to create source, it is necessary to build more conservatoires in places where do not have sources.

In future, it is necessary to specify the reserves of ground water source, location, the reproductive capacity to have plan on effective and sustainable exploitation and use.​​​

Duc Hue district is located in the North of Long An Province with the natural area of 43,174.93 ha and the population of 68,238 people according to the census up to 21/5/2013. The district is divided into 11 administrative units (10 communes and 1 town) and shares the borders with 4 districts of Long An Province, Tay Ninh province and Cambodia, in particular, the Northeast adjoins to Duc Hoa district, the South and the Southeast adjoin to Thu Thua District and Ben Luc district, the West and Southwest adjoin to Thanh Hoa District, Long An Province and Cambodia.

Duc Hue is located at the northeast edge of Dong Thap Muoi region, adjoining to Southeast Region where is the transition from the Southeast to Mekong River Delta Region. With the above mentioned geographical location, the district receives the freshwater source from Dau Tieng Lake which helps Duc Hue District to promote the advantage in producing the typical agricultural products of Mekong River Delta Region such as: rice, sugarcane, animals (pig, cows, ducks), shrimps, fish and forestry product (melaleuca). In addition, thanks to located nearest to the border gate from Cambodia to Hau Nghia Town to Ho Chi Minh City, the district has the advantage for developing service and trade (import and export activities through the border gate), attracting the investments into the district (farm, service, trade etc.). In the future, when the main traffic axes and border ring roads N1 are completed, Duc Hue shall have the great opportunities to exploit the socio-economic development advantages, especially in service economy to contribute to transit the economy mechanism following modernization and industrialization.

Besides above mentioned advantages, the geographical location also brings about some restrictions to Duc Hue district as follows: because this is the transition location between the Southeast Region and Mekong River Delta Region with the overlapping of Pleitocene and new alluvial as well as the alum coating, therefore, 100% soil is of "having problem" land category. In addition, when Dau Tieng Lake is not yet completed, the entire Duc Hue district is contaminated with saline with the volume of 4g/l for 3-4 months/year and the infrastructure is not yet invested properly, the district is the poorest district of Long An province (with the percentage of poor households of 19.3%). At the same time, with 25km of border line (in 4 communes), the district is the "hot location" of smuggling with the participation of many people which causes the delays in agricultural production because it is easy to earn money than honest work.

The district consist of Dong Thanh Town-the center of the district and 10 communes of My Thanh Dong, My Quy Dong, My Quy Tay, My Thanh Tay, Binh Thanh, My Thanh Bac, Binh Hoa Bac, Binh Hoa Nam, Binh Hoa Hung, My Binh (separated from Binh Hoa Hung commune).​
