The Stung Atay dam in southern Pursat is open as of the end of 2013 despite lack of fanfare. The previous rumours about damage or delay seem to be unfounded. The dam’s reservoir extends north along the Atay river past the classic Cardamom’s town of O’saom. Between O’saom and Pramaoy, the old road is flooded and an extra 10km is now required to take a new road which wraps around a portion of the reservoir.
I don’t know how the dam project is structured but I think there are several stages (at least 3). They are spread out from the first stage pictured above to the 3rd stage which is a few km south
