Pattaya: Filthy black water floods into the sea just as authorities plan to open beach again

Just when tourists thought it might be safe to go back into the Pattaya sea again comes news that filthy black water has once again blighted the area.

 

77kaoded said that comment was rife from the foreign community in Pattaya after video on the We Love Pattaya fan page showed the dirty water gushing into the sea from a pumping station near the entrance to Walking Street. 

 

The caption on their main picture just said "Black Sea".

 

Reporters went to the scene and found the water had stopped flowing but evidence of the damage done was everywhere.

 

They surmised that this event was a result of heavy rains all through the night Thursday/Friday. 

 

They said this would damage tourism and damage the sea and called on the authorities to act. 

 

Pattaya's beaches have been closed as a result of lockdown measures but are slated to reopen on Monday.

 

The resort's long suffering residents will have to practice social distancing - but that distancing may well mean staying away from the sea.

We got some real heavy rain late Friday night so I wonder what went on under the cover of darkness and curfew.

If you heard rain, it was probably raining. Even if you couldn´t see it.
