The Long Run: Water-saving measures rolled out to make reserves last as long as possible

PHUKET: Phuket Provincial Waterworks Authority (PWA) Chief Graisorn Mahamad is urging all people across central and northern Phuket to conserve as much water as they can. The call comes as dwindling reserves start to dry up and drastic water-saving measures are leaving large populated areas without any tap water at all.

 

Water released from Bang Wad reservoir has been reduced to half its usual output, leaving many areas in Patong, Thepkrasattri, Pa Khlok, Koh Kaew and Wichit, including all of Cape Panwa, without mains water supply, Mr Graison confirmed this week.

 

“But some parts of Patong still have 100% mains water supply because the PWA is using water from a private source to supply them,” he added.

As you want to save water, the sugar factory here uses a large amount daily to clean the street, the temple occasionally to wash some meeting points consume a tank truck.
Let's not talk about nearby Songkran ...

They are an ISLAND, surrounded by OCEANS, yet no one has the sense to build a solar powered desalination plant. Dumbfounding, to put it mildly. 

What do you expect exactly ?

Its more important to build Motorways all over the Country, and call it Infrastructure
