Pattaya's sea - nothing short of an environmental disaster zone

PATTAYA -- Sophon Cable TV reported that the sea around South Pattaya was nothing short of an environmental disaster zone.

 

They made a video and spoke to frustrated tourism operators who said their businesses were going down the pan at an alarming rate.

 

The video showed the disgusting black water and sludge and a huge amount of stinking rubbish and effluent polluting a 300 meter stretch of the shore.

 

And this time there was no convenient plankton to blame for the mess.

 

Nobody was anywhere near the beach and deckchair operators, massage personnel and traders were fed up that virtually nothing is being done to address the problem and save their businesses.

 

The only effort to clear up is some sweepers who arrive in the morning.

 

Nothing is being done to address the problem of sewage flowing into the sea, especially during the rainy season, they said.

 

Many felt that it was time for the tourism authorities who have such big plans for the resort to take a look for themselves at the disgraceful state of the beach and the sea in Pattaya and start working on some answers.

Should have been done 30+ years ago, but they've all been too busy just raping the place for money.

There is a creek that runs behind some buildings across the street from Bali Hai. If you saw it you would not believe it, black water and garbage. Sure it empties in the sea.

They are just too busy, a situation just over their heads, building toll booths, widening Beach Road, putting up cross walk signals that have all been abandon, painting impressive color traffic lines and stops for Songthaw, digging a tunnel that is behind schedule, but the BIB, are setting up stings for violators who are tired of waiting for it to open. Now they are planning a light rail system all at a cost of millions/billions. While Pattaya continues to grow with no real master plan to improve the system as they continue to add to the sewer.

Down where I live is a creek that goes into the ocean.  We call it the river of poop.  Disgusting.

I recall seeing a plaque halfway down the beach stating that Pattaya Beach had been voted the cleanest beach in S.E.Asia. Hilarious ! Instead of hassling the bars, the authorities should be spending more time and effort limiting the amount of sewage being directed to the beach.

You would never get me into the disgusting ocean in Thailand.  The seas are putrid and you would have to be suicidal.

That's the trouble with clearing the beach of umbrellas and chairs.

Now we can see just how filthy and disgusting the beach there really is.

Guess who has been at least trying to keep it clean, yep, those operators that are now gone.

 

We walked to the southern end of Cozy Beach a few years ago and you could see the oily sludge built up on the water from the current. Never swam there again.

hmmmm..... i went to this beach 10 years ago and it was self-evident then that it was a disaster zone. I guess it has only taken the authorities that many years to wake up to this fact(muted applause)
