PHUKET: Heavy rains over the past week have helped to replenish the island’s three main reservoirs to healthy levels, meaning island residents may be spared water shortages for the rest of the year, the new Phuket Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) Chief Sophon Thongsai has announced.

 

 

 

Mr Sophon said yesterday (Oct 12) that the recent heavy rains have helped greatly to increase the water levels at the three reservoirs.

 

The Phuket Provincial Waterworks Authority reports that Bang Wad reservoir in Kathu, the island’s main reservoir with a capacity of 10.3 million cubic metres (m3), is currently 73.8% full with 7.53mn m3 of water, he said.
