Pattaya’s flood problems raised at council meeting

Traffic flow and tourism issues also addressed

The problem of persistent flooding in Pattaya was raised at last week’s city council meeting. City engineers proposed installing a more efficient drainage system in the affected areas.

City council members raised the issue, calling for budget allowance to resolve constant flooding along Pattaya Third Road and other badly affected sections of the city.

Wirwat Jirasri, city engineering director told councilors and city administrators that Third Road was once a canal. “This area is a basin in which water collects naturally along Pattaya Third Road and the current drainage system is unable to cope with flooding after heavy rain. Larger drains from Soi Lengkee in South Pattaya up to Soi Pechtrakul should solve the problem. The system would also be linked to the Pattaya waste water treatment plant.”

No doubt there will be a more full report of the very successful Pattaya International Ladies Club Holiday Bazaar (whew that’s a mouthful) in the Pattaya Mail, but this is a little different, being a ‘vendor’s eye view’ of the Saturday in the Royal Cliff Beach Resort’s Siam ballroom.

As my wife Som was running a table with her Chiang Mai orchid jewelry, bazaar organizer, the tireless Arlette Cykman, suggested that Som should have someone with her, to allow absenteeism for comfort stops and the like. So at least I knew my place – the Rest Room Substitute!
