The rainmaking program itself officially started the day before (Sept 5) and is planned to continue until November 15.

Coincidentally during Phuket's rainy season.

When all announcements and all avenues of ensuring a reliable water supply to Phuket, other than updating water collection and water storage are exhausted, then and only then will they start thinking of improving the infrastructure.

 

Once they start thinking of improvements to the water infrastructure they will then commence the construction of more resorts and condo's and put the water question on the back burner again.

Water supply and wastewater collection and treatment have always been very poor here in Patong where I live, and I haven't seen that really change in the more than 12 years I've been here.

 

If you think about it, there have been reports of "black water" flowing into the sea in Patong for many years and every so often they crop up again, and now it has been reported in Kamala. No surprise because of the amount of new construction which is going on there!

 

True they have dug up a few roads and put in larger drainpipes etc here and there, but most of that has been for show and for the ability to be able to skim off the budgets provided.

 

As long as someone higher up the food chain is making money, or attempting to make money, by continually building a hotel, condos or somesuch like, then the infrastructure is never considered.

The rain will come. ☔ Many people living here for a while for sure remember that there have been years we have got the first hard rain lasting days, in November, and it have kept raining to Christmas and longer, the last years we have even got weeks in Jan/Feb with some days hard rain .The Meteorological department have themselves in a rough long yearly forecast announced that the rain season in the South will last until late December this year. But of course its not good to announce that considering the start of tourist/high season.😉

Of course. The rainmaking squad wouldnt want to lose face.

 

Then again, I've invented a new light, costs nothing at all to operate but can only be used during the day. ....... and only cloudless days

If it was an ARJ21 you’d be almost positive it looked like an MD80..

hmmmmm MD80 has been retired but ARJ21 kicked in 5 years ago?

The ideal time for a fake rainmaking operation.

Yesterday's brief period of heavy rain brought tons of mud down to the beach from the hillsides above Karon , now stripped for the construction of condominiums.
