    1. 1. IMPACTS OF LANDUSE CHANGE ON SEDIMENT TRANSPORT IN THE YALI RESERVOIR CATCHMENT Tarek Ketelsen, Luke Taylor, Mai Ky Vinh, Truong Hong CHALLENGE PROGRAM ON WATER & FOOD IN THE MEKONG: Optimizing the management of hydropower cascades at the catchment level (MK3)
    2. 2. Land management options for reservoir benefits 1. Soil conservation 2. Enhancing reservoir life UPSTREAM RESERVOIR Watershed communities/ water user sectors DOWNSTREAM Water use options of reservoir for catchment benefits 1. Irrigation potential 2. Flood control 3. Fish passage requirements 4. E-flow 2
    3. 3. Yali Reservoir, Viet nam Trung Nghia (TN) sub -catchment Kon Tum (KT) sub -catchment • What is the sediment inflow to Yali? • How do historic sediment loads vary with changes in flow/rainfall and land use? • What are the implications for reservoir life? 3
    4. 4. Catchment suspended sediment yield (SSY) Proportion of catchment erosion which ends up in the waterways Global: (Vanoni, 1975) 10 – 20,000 t/km²/yr Mekong: (Kummu, 2010) 18 – 489 t/km²/yr 3S Basin (Kummu, 2010) 220 – 240 t/km²/yr Yali (KT & TN observation data 1990 – 2009) 79 – 1,051 t/km²/yr 4
    5. 5. Large variability in Yali catchment SSY 2009: Ketsana 1996: Wukong 5
    6. 6. Long term trends in SSY Annual increment in SSY in 2005-09 is ~ double the 90-97 rate 6
    7. 7. Drivers of trends in SSY A. Changes in rainfall/flow regime B. Changes in land use Source: IWMI, 2002 7

    10. 10. Estimating Yali sediment inflow Trung Nghia (TN) sub -catchment 1. PECC1 official design eqn. – Kon Tum (KT) sub -catchment Based on long time series of discharge at KT 2. PECC1 empirical catchment SSY relationships – – based on long time series discharge data (1960s-1990s) at KT and TN Scaled based on ungauged area 3. Observed sediment loads KT, TN (1990-2009) – Scaled based on ungauged area 10

    14. 14. Next (final!) steps 1. Explore sensitivity of Yali sediment inflow to land use change using the Revised Universal Soil Loss Equation – – Maximum catchment erosion (aggressive deforestation scenario) Minimised catchment erosion (aggressive afforestation scenario) 2. Estimate changes in reservoir half life based on change upland management 14
