Day 1

The team arrived in Boen and immediately engaged with the local community to discuss the ongoing project. Then, conducted inspection of the progress made on the lower reservoir and continued excavation to ensure proper drainage. However, several challenges were encountered during the process such as a miscommunication regarding the depth of the lower reservoir, unreliable transportation led to delays etc. Despite these challenges, the team remained committed to overcoming obstacles and ensuring the successful completion of the project.
