Assessment on the Maximum Water Level at the Confluence of The Ayeyarwady and Myitnge Rivers
- The area near and around the confluence of the Ayeyarwady and Myitnge Rivers is experienced seasonal flood in each and every year. In some years, that area is also experienced severe flood situations. The area is periodically facing with the minor and major flood by heavy local rainfall and the maximum water level of the above two rivers.Heavy local rainfall can produce flash flood and high level of water can also ,: produce normal flood. Generally, any type of flood can give two opposite opportunities: one for advantage and the other for disadvantage. The conditions of disadvantage were more worsen when it encountered severe flood situation. For that reason it is necessary to observe the probability ofthe flood years and local rainfall intensity that can give danger level. And also it is necessary to assess the probable highest point of maximum water level and the resultant its affected areas. The study shows that the International Airport of Tada-U and its nearby built up areas has been experienced the endanger situation of flood from the above two main rivers or some intermittent streams and other channels (i.e. Irrigation System). In this paper preliminary investigations are made for the above situations.
