Chiang Saen - Article 6A for planning purposes (pending issue)
The acceptable flows framework for planning purposes during the dry season is based on the monthly average discharge in the dry season (December-May) during 1986-2000, as simulated by the
Baseline scenario in the DSF at Chiang Saen .

|Flow framework cConsiderations
For each month, a range of thresholds is used to consider the year-to-year natural variation of water availability. In case of a wet year, the monthly minimum flow
will be maintained at the upper bound while the lower bound will be applied in case of a dry year. In average, the monthly minimum flow should be maintained between the
A considered scenario could NOT be deemed acceptable for planning purposes if the average discharge simulated by the DSF is below lower bound for one or more months of
the dry season at one or more of the selected hydrological stations.
