Through the above project, two kinds of road will be constructed as well; one is an access road of 1.05km length with 4m width from Roka Khnaor No.6 village to the Boeung Thom reservoir, another one is a farm road of 1.8km length with 4m width from farmland to water gate No.2 at reservoir.
To improve resident environment for villagers, 29 hand pump wells and 635 latrines will be installed at 3 villages. Finally, diffusion rate of latrine for 3 villages will be reached into 100%. Moreover, Agricultural technologies have been transferred for three kind crops such as rice, tobacco and corn to the farmers in this project sites. Anyways, this project will improve educational environment of the school by providing educational facilities such as computers, printers, books, a solar electricity system, desks, and chairs and so on.
Thus, the opening ceremony for the construction of reservoir and irrigation system will reveal the process of project implementation towards success in the future.
