People living in 22 northern, north-eastern, eastern and southern Thai provinces are being advised to brace for shortages of water for consumption during the upcoming dry season. The dry season is due to start on November 1st and may last up to eight months.

 

The warning was issued today by the National Water Resources Office citing low levels of water in reservoirs, which are the main sources for tap water production by 42 provincial waterworks in 22 provinces.

 

Areas at risk, identified by the National Water Resources Office, are 19 districts in Chiang Mai, Lampang, Phayao, Chiang Rai, Nakhon Sawan, Phichit and Phetchabun in the northern region; 32 districts in the north-eastern provinces of Nakhon Ratchasima Roi-et, Maha Sarakham, Chaiyaphum, Khon Kaen, Udon Thani, Nong Bua Lamphu, Loei, Sakhon Nakhon and Buriram; Pattaya in Chon Buri province and four districts in Phang-nga, Phuket, Nakhon Si Thammarat and Surat Thani.

I thought that PM Cha Cha and crew were experts at water management. 

Didn't they get this sorted out a while back. 

Or perhaps it is China cutting the flow of The Mekong river 

Soon there will be drought victims/donations pouring in

That will be donations from the public of course. As the PM said with the flooding, that the government didn't have the cash to help them, resulting in the PM appealing on TV for Thais to send their own money to help, instead of using the government's budget to more weapons.

CM has had very little rain so this is believable for the population and agricultural sector here. But who are they going to restrict? The citizens and population who live here or the growers?

I notice water outage very often since last year, even during raining season, the pressure is less too.
First suspected a technical issue or maintenance but that was not the case.

Wonder how bad it is going to be then, as raining season just finished more or less. Lucky to at least have a 1000L reserve tank with pump, have neighbours without that could not even use the toilet for almost an entire day sometimes.
