ASSESSING THE IMPACTS OF RESERVOIR OPERATION ON SALTWATER INTRUSION IN TRA KHUC- VE RIVER BASIN

Huy Cong Vu, Thuy Nga To, Hung Le.

Abstract
The Tra Khuc - Ve is the largest river basin in Quang Ngai province, Vietnam. During dry periods,
this estuary often experiences saltwater intrusion, which causes adverse impact on irrigation and urban water
supply. Especially, saltwater intrusion is 2expected to be more severe under the improper operation of the
reservoirs upstream. In this study, these variations are investigated using numerical models MIKE 11. A series of
scenarios were simulated with different discharge flows from the upstream reservoirs according to the operating
procedure issued by the Prime Minister. It has been shown that reducing salinity levels can be achieved by making
a reasonable change in operational policy. Among analyzed scenarios, scenario 2B, wherein the hydropower plants
are operated at the same time, is the best choice for reservoirs in the Tra Khuc - Ve river basin. Research on
saltwater intrusion in Tra Khuc estuary therefore contributes useful findings for the operation of upstream
reservoirs to prevent saline intrusion.

Key words: Saltwater intrusion, Tra Khuc river, operating rule curve, reservoirs
