An initial meeting with Mr. U Myint Soe (Assistant Director of Bago Area) to coordinate the planned field survey along the eastern portion of Bago River Basin that connects the river to Sittang River and Gulf of Martaban. It was decided that the two-day field survey on these areas was divided into travel along Bago-Sittang canal and Min Ywa-Kok ko Drainage canal. This day was dedicated for surveying the flood control structures along the Bago-Sittang canal.
