City workers continued to clean out storm-drainage pipelines as the heart of the rainy season kicks in.

Eight Engineering Department employees used vacuum trucks to suck dirt, garbage and other debris out of the underground pipelines. Workers popped drain covers and scraped out crud from the Dolphin Roundabout to Central Road. After removing garbage, cigarettes, leaves and twigs, they flushed the lines with water.

Sanitation Engineers clean dirt, garbage and sand out of the drainage pipes on Beach Road in Central Pattaya. Sanitation Engineers clean dirt, garbage and sand out of the drainage pipes on Beach Road in Central Pattaya.

Crew chief Patiwat Janthong said such work will be done monthly, fixing broken pipes or drain covers as they go. He also reminded the public that using public drains as garbage cans carries a 2,000 baht fine.
