Been a long time coming


Aloha Pattaya Mail;

For many years the Pollution Solution Group has been to Pattaya City Hall, talking with Mayor Itthiphol Kunplome and others, leaving pictures of plugged up storm drains that were causing much of the flooding of contaminated water into homes, shops, and flooding roads.

Also putting information in all of the local papers, has finally struck a note. (Hoping we had something to do with it)

We now see for the first time in our 12 years, actual muck removers, men and women working very hard in dangerous, hot conditions, climbing into the contaminated storm drains, mucking out years of buildup, sand, dirt, garbage, rocks, filling trucks with tons of muck, that has been blocking much of the flow for years, causing most of the yearly flooding.

It appears they are doing a great job.

Regardless who started the wheels in motion, we here at TPSG are grateful, we should all be grateful, a tremendous move in the right direction.

KOTO Keeper Of The Ocean

  • Due, in no small part to your efforts Koto !
    Thank you.

  • Whats with this “Keeper of the Ocean Crap?”
    I have watched workers clearing draines for years.
    Its’s a job I wouldn’t like doing.But to hint that you have never seen it done in 12 years baffles me.
    These workers deserve all the praise they can get
    and don’t need you stealing some of their Limelite.

  • Koto Keeper of the Ocean????? Poseidon is the Greek God of the Ocean (Roman Name “Neptune”) Poseidon was the second highest of the Gods Second only to Zeus. When he gets angry he can cause storms and earthquakes looks you have bitten off more then you can chew by stealing his Name. Better arm your followers with Tridents as a storm may bring more garbage then you can handle.

    The pollution group works hard to help sort out problems in Pattaya but anyone who walks down the beach from Central shopping centre to Pattaya Klang will be overcome by all the trash on the beach. Seems the old habits of letting someone else clean up after you are hard to break.

    Have been coming here for over 10 years and watched the storm drains being cleaned out every year – at this time just before the rainy season.
    No self respecting city hall would ever be without these honey dippers.
    As for the influence of TPSG – the mayor is halfway through his second 4 year term so actually you had no influence whatsoever as the machines were always there.
