SONG TRANH: deep water reservoir

Seismic activity linked to Song Tranh 2 hydropower plant and the reservoir containing backed up water of Tranh river in central Vietnam. The reservoir volume is 740 million cubic meters and the water level varies between 140 and 175 m. Seismic activity in the reservoir region, previously known as aseismic, began in 2011, soon after filling of the reservoir.
