Condition of the water: Myanmar
Myanmar Union is located in Southeast Asia and is 2200 km long from north to south and 950 km from east to west. Burma shares boundaries with five neighbouring states and has a very long coastline of about 2234 km along the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea.
Burma is one of the ASEAN member states and has abundant mineral wealth, available mineral waters and a favourable global warming. Burma is a forested highland region with plateaux, dales and lowlands. Myanmar's total populace according to 2003-2004 statistics is 52 million and the average year on year increase is around 2 cents.
Burma is a land with plentiful aquatic ressources. Myanmar's ten main rivers cover approximately 737800km². The possible volumes of groundwater are 1082 kmÂ for groundwater and 495 cc. for groundwater. Myanmar's agrarian land is 90% of agriculture's total consumption of drinking waters, while industrial and household use accounts for only about 10% of total use.
Total use of the country's drinking waters is only about 5 per cent of its total resource capacity. Clearly, the country's natural resource capacity for the further expansion of Myanmar's aquatic environment is considerable. However, with the growth of the local populations and the increased need for bottled waters for business purposes, the pressures on the use of ground waters and the abstraction of ground waters are growing.
Therefore, the monitoring and cultivation of ground and ground waters is important for the long-term economic and social growth of the state. In comparison to the overall situation, the proportion of the population supplied with clean potable and sanitary supplies is still very low. Myanmar began in 1952 with the provision of clean potable waters to the countryside and rehabilitation of the environment.
Currently, several research and development programs on wastewater treatment and distribution are underway with the support of various multinational organisations. By the end of August 1995, the government had carried out various measures for the provision of basic drinking waters to 12.5 million people. The majority of the watering basins were located at the inlets and streams of the most important sources of fresh waters.
As a result, the environmental impacts of hydroelectric power plants are insignificant without obstructing or obstructing the flows of the most important sources of hydroelectric power. Likewise, in the Ayeyarwady basin, Myanmar's principal canal, no large artificial lakes were built that could obstruct discharge. The use of tank bottled waters is not only used for watering but also for watering.
Most of the results show that the dam's waters are of agricultural use. Salty land is formed in the watered area due to draining and absorption difficulties in some areas of Myanmar.
In Myanmar there are also problems with settling in some large rivers. The Irrigation Department was involved and co-operated with the Forestry Department for afforestation in some catchment areas as a consequence of the loss of forests in the water catchment areas and as a countermeasure.
