PHUKET: Construction of Kamala’s first wastewater-treatment plant began this week, with the B58 million facility scheduled for completion by February next year. The news comes after another week of black wastewater from Pak Bang Canal at the southern end of Kamala fouling the water at the popular tourist beach.

 

As an immediate response to the black wastewater, officials from Kamala Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor) had the rancid sludge dredged from the bottom of the canal and had EM (effective micro-organism) balls dumped into the murky water.

 

“We will keep doing this to make the water quality better, so the water smells better and becomes more clear,” said Nopporn Karuna, Kamala OrBorTor Deputy Chief.

Pattaya got a sewage treatment plant 10 years ago (https://www.pattayamail.com/news/neglected-pattaya-sewage-treatment-plant-leaking-needs-costly-repairs-159037), never really made a difference.

 

Bangkok got the 6 billion baht Klong Dan waste water treatment plant. Ended up costing 23 billion baht.

Where sh!t flows, sh!t goes.

This is very good news for Kamala.

 

hopefully it is completed on time and works well.

 

Also good news recently for Bangtao beach as well. I beleive they are also getting a wastewater treatment facility.
