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.

“The system will be able to treat up to 1,000 cubic meters of water per day, which will be enough for the dry season, but when the heavy rains come the extra water flowing through the canal may mean that not all the wastewater will be treated before being released,’ Mr Nopporn admitted.

 

Typical Thai way of solving a problem - by piecemeal.  In the meantime, everybody continues to dump waste into the klong.  Well, I reckon its better than doing nothing at all.

Middle Khlong was black and stinking on Friday.  Little water bubbler thing is useless.

 

Top one was the same. An old Muslim lady was up there looking at it and just shaking her head with disgust and dismay. 

 

It will be interesting to see if today's rain flushed them out a bit.
