Sattahip and Chonburi officials meet to discuss solutions for severe water supply issues in area


Sattahip and Chonburi officials met yesterday morning to discuss finding a solution regarding lack of water and low water pressure in Sattahip after many local complaints.

Sathira Pueakprapan, a member of the council in Chonburi and other local officials held the meeting to discuss how to solve water problems in Sattahip at about 11:00 AM yesterday morning.

Mr. Sathira told The Pattaya News, “Sattahip area receives water from three main providers which are from the water works authority in Sattahip, Ban Chang and Pattaya.”

“Many areas in Thailand are facing drought problems as well as residents in Sattahip. This cause some area to have no water and some area has weak water pressure. Additionally, these problems can be unpredictable and last for extended periods of time. ”

“We have confirmed that the overall water supply is still enough in the area until June which will be the end of the dry season. However, please save and conserve water in the interim period.” Sathira continued.

“We are trying our best to solve the water problems and divert water from the areas with higher levels of supply.” He finished.
