Abstract

The Mekong is an essential source of water and protein for the denizens of Thai Laos countries. However historic pollution is adversely affecting the water and sediment quality that threatens the short- and long-term supply-use of this major river system. This can have a major impact on the health and population of the marine life and ultimately adversely affect human health and the economy for both countries.
