The Cabinet has approved a Bt11-billion budget for the Provincial Waterworks Authority (PWA)’s six projects that were approved in 2018 with the aim of benefiting more than 200,000 people in provincial areas.

 

Ratchada Thanadirek, deputy government spokesperson, said the Bt11 billion will be divided into Bt7.3 billion worth of government subsidies, Bt2.4 billion as domestic loans and Bt1.2 billion as income for PWA.

 

The projects are as follows:

 

1. Construction of raw-water plumbing station and water production and distribution station, including water pipes in PWA’s Ban Chang project to supply to the Eastern Economic Corridor;

 

2. Construction of a raw-water plumbing station and water production and distribution station to improve raw water storage capacity in PWA’s Phang Nga-Phuket branch;

 

3. Construction of a raw-water plumbing station and production and distribution station as well as the laying of water pipes at the Udon Than-Nong Kha-Nong Bua Lamphu branch;

 

4. Construction of a raw-water plumbing station and water production and distribution station including laying of water pipes at Mae Sai branch (Huay Krai-Mae Chan-Chiang Saen) to supply the special economic zone;

 

5. Construction of raw-water plumbing station, water chute and water production and distribution station as well as laying water pipes at the Nakhon Si Thammarat branch;

 

6. Construction of raw-water plumbing station and water production and distribution station including the laying of water pipes in the Kantang branch (Sikao-Pak Meng).

 

These projects are scheduled to be ready for use by 2021 and should provide water for an additional 239,618 users with an increased supply of 332,400 cubic metres of water per day.

Next could be subsidies on solar cell panels - or at least the deletion of the ridiculously high import duties.

Apart from creating shade (shopping centre parking etc. spring to mind) it would reduce dependance on hydro- and thermopower which both would lead to more useable water for irrigation/consumption.

 "Construction of raw-water plumbing station and water production and distribution station" Translation from The Nation News English to Real English: "Construction of raw-water pumping station, water treatment plant and potable water pumping station".

These are water works but not against flooding. They should spend less on the military and more on flooding. With the amount of money going into the military a lot could be done against flooding. But I guess its harder to take a cut from.

Even more money should be allocated for the construction and maintenance of Sewage Treatment Plants ! Chucking it all into the nearest watercourse just isn,t good enough !
