Pattaya has enough water until June – PWA

1372-N1-Feb-12-02-Tap-Water-says-enough-

Chak Nok Reservoir is nearly dry.

 

PATTAYA:--The Provincial Waterworks Authority said Pattaya has at least enough water to last through June.

 

Udom Thipdecho, director of the Chonburi Provincial Irrigation Department, and PWA officials told the Pattaya Business & Tourism Association’s Feb. 12 meeting that water pressure has been reduced as much as 20 percent in some areas, causing it to run slowly, but at least the entire region still has running water.

 

The PWA has been diverting water from other areas to fill five reservoirs serving Pattaya. Together they currently have 264,000 cubic meters of water, which can last through June even if it doesn’t rain again.

 

Officials urged business leaders to continue conservation efforts until the drought threat has eased.

Doesn't sound too bad, first rains come at Songkran in April, that gives the dams 2 months to fill up.

Traditionally, yes, but countries all around the world are experiencing very different weather and climate patterns in the last 12 to 18 months. 

 

Those rains may not come in the frequency and amount that we are used to seeing here.

The last two years in CM it's actually rained on the Songkran party.

He is telling the truth! There is no water shortage. however, our water supply has been turned off for a week now at the top of Khao Talo.

Will last until June if the supply is shut down. The 20% reduction means that the 80% down the hill are getting their tanks filled and it never gets enough pressure to reach us!

So, shut everybody off and the water will last forever, because the dam level never decreases.   🤣

Let's give a shout out to all those who urinate and deficate in the ocean at Pattaya beach.

They are saving many flushes of toilet water which probably adds a few days to the supply.

Bravo.
