That sand ain't good enough for Pattaya - authorities scurry to act

That sand ain't good enough for Pattaya - authorities scurry to act

Picture: Pattaya News

 

Coastal authorities in Pattaya have discovered that sand they intended to use to replenish a 2.8 kilometer stretch of beach is not good enough.

 

The sand was meant to come from Koh Rang but has been deemed by harbor master officer Ekkarat Khantaro as being just not good enough quality for Pattaya.

 

So the authorities are trying to find alternatives that will make the Pattaya beach from north to south beautiful again.

 

They need 400,000 cubic meters so if anyone has some lovely golden sand please let them know.

 

But Ekkarat told Pattaya News not to worry - the sand will be sourced and work will commence in April and all will be hunky dory soon.

There's loads on the road near my house in Bang Saray - the authorities have been putting in new drains here for FOUR months now.  They have made the road impassable and now it severely floods when it rains.

Hire some Dutch sand-hoppers, they are used to do it and use the sand from the sea. Examples enough along the Dutch coast! My God it is not so hard. For example the beach of Hook of Holland ( Netherlands) made 40 yrs ago very wide and some now dunes and still exist.

Ah but, this is Thai sand/sea, very very different.

 

I understand they are planning to develop a "Thai wheel" very soon.

I expect the sand in question would be fine for you!

Anything to get the damned job finished!

It doesn't matter what sand it is as it will all get washed away again anyway.

The colour is not important as after 1 year as being used as a shit filter it will be grey anyway

I can recall Miami when they need larger beaches.... they dredged the sand from a few hundred meters from the share and sent it right where it was needed.  But I guess pattaya sand even a few hundred meters into the sea is just as polluted as their beaches...

Here only goons exist. Though the 2 words may rhyme, the meaning is completely different.

Yes,  yes, although maybe not 'near now' a short drive..

So you DON'T want the job finished, well I do!

I doubt the coral will recover, sewage flowed in around that spot for years and years.

And you have a noxious response! Take a pill! Where do people like you come from?

not good enough quality for Pattaya.

It was missing:
- cigarette butts  

- plastic bottles

- plastic bags

- dog's shit
- homeless' feces and pee

- oil pollution from the jet skis

- all other garbage you can imagine that's on Pattaya's beach.
