Environmentalists and NGOs are threatening to sue developers of a controversial hydropower dam, claiming the project would cause irreversible damage to the Mekong River.
The Don Sahong dam, a 260-megawatt project proposed on a site less than two kilometres north of the Cambodian-Lao border, is expected to begin construction this month.
Members of Save the Mekong Coalition gathered yesterday at a conference urging a moratorium on the dam until further studies could be conducted.
