PWA regional manager Suthat Nuchtpal said the Mabprachan Reservoir is running dangerously low, restricting the utility’s ability to turn hard water into tap water.

Pattaya uses about 220,000 cu. meters of water a day on weekends and holidays, putting a strain on the entire system.

Suthat nonetheless urged Pattaya residents to conserve water.
