HCMC - HCMC is proceeding with a project to build a sluice worth VND230 billion (US$10.3 million) in districts 1 and 4 to control flood tides in the center of the city.

The sluice is envisaged going up in Ben Nghe Canal which stretches 3,100 meters from the Saigon River to Doi Canal, according to the city government's decision that approves the plan and cost of a contest to be organized to seek the best design for the tide sluice.

The sluice project includes a dam, water control valves, a management area, and embankments that protect works in the downstream area. The valves will be closed when the river water level is higher than 0.6 meter in the rainy season and tides are one meter high.

As the sluice is planned near the city's landmarks like the State Bank of Vietnam building, Mong Bridge, Ho Chi Minh Museum, and Thu Ngu Flagpole, the city wants to choose a design which meets requirements for flood control and cityscape via the contest.

Preparations for the contest are now underway.

According to an approved master zoning plan, the city would have a dozen sluices to control floods but only one of them has been put into use in Nhieu Loc-Thi Nghe Canal
