Apsara Authority is digging ponds, pumping mud and transporting water in the Moats around Bakong temple
From June 10 to 11, the Apsara Authority, in cooperation with the Bakong district administration, is working hard to dig wells, to transport water to the moats at the Bakong temple and transport water from the outside. Mud is pumped from the deep wells, which enables more water to be pumped to the moats located in Bakong temple. This work is being done to save the big fish in the lake and enable them to survive in the moats of the Bakong temple.
According to Long Kosal, the current state of the water in the Bakong district is very dry and there is little water left because of the early rainy season when unfortunately it didn’t rain much. Another major reason is that the Bakong’s moats only rises due to groundwater springs and has no direct connection with the river.
