From the Article (” New report warns of Boeung Kak flooding”):
“The Boeung Kak Area Drainage and Flooding Assessment report, prepared by a team of Australian drainage and flooding engineers in 2008, found the filling of the lake for a 133-hectare commercial and housing project would eliminate a major rain catchment area, leading to”significant impacts on property” in areas adjacent to the lake.”

“…a representative from Boeung Kak’s Village 22, agreed with the study, saying that more and more villagers were losing their homes as the lake’s reclamation continued to drive up water levels.”
