Jomtien's Black Sea: Sticking a plaster on a gaping wound!

Recommended Posts

Jomtien's Black Sea: Sticking a plaster on a gaping wound!

Picture: Manager Onlne

 

A picture on the Manager site showed what the authorities had done so far to stop more repulsive black sludge from flowing into the sea. 

 

Sandbags blocking a drain. 

 

It amounted to sticking a plaster on a gaping wound, notes Thaivisa. 

 

The authorities admitted there was much to be done to find a permanent solution to the problem that saw damning videos and still photography all over social media.

 

The Jomtien area was a black sea of sludge - a very unwelcome sight for any tourist considering holidaying in the area. 

 

While an initial clean up has been done - and the hole has been plugged for now - the authorities in Jomtien and the wider area of Pattaya are wondering what exactly to do next. 

 

It could be months before anything happens with millions needing to be spent. 

 

Thaivisa further notes that the story is beset with recriminations and all manner of plans to rectify the situation.

 

Effluent and trash flowing directly into the sea has been the subject of continuing complaints in the area for years.

Let's see what water pressure can do and how long these sandbags will hold.

Someone probably got a bonus for his (not) superb idea !

To their credit, they did acknowledge the larger issue involved. 

 

But still, would have been interesting to be sat at the conference table when this stop-gap solution was proposed and approved.  Wouldn't interfere, just want to observe the process.

Great idea

Build the pipe then block it off

Do they not think a new fountain of crap will erupt somewhere along the pipe

I wonder how many meetings they had before they came to this very clever solution?

Those bags are filled with concrete. The guy who gave them to his workers has reportedly said 'that isn't really what I meant'......

More like sticking a cork up your backside than a plaster.

Hope they get the water "pristine" for the Triathlon this year.

Typical Pattaya - Jomtien way of doing things... do it the cheapest way and pocket the rest of the city’s municipal operation money.
