Pattaya’s Sanitation Department has kicked into overdrive, cleaning drains and collecting garbage in 19 spots around the city.
Now that rainy season has reached its end, the big cleanup is on. Workers spread out across Pattaya to pick up the rubbish floodwaters carried into streets and drains from Oct. 30 to Nov. 2.
Targeted was garbage in the Kratinglai Canal at the bridge in Thepprasit Soi 1 and construction of a box culvert at the beginning of Najomtien Soi 2 and Sukhumvit Road.
Damaged sewer lids along South Road, Pratamnak Soi 6, Soi Chaiyapruek and Second Road were repaired.
Drainage pipes were cleaned on the railway-parallel road, Naklua Soi 14/2, Soi 17 and Pratamnak Soi 5.
Steel plates on roads also were collected from Soi Chaiyapruek and Sukhumvit Soi 43 and new clarifiers were constructed in the Ban Nernrodfai Community.
Sanitation workers also investigated claims of wastewater being illegally dumped by an Indian restaurant and unknown businesses on North Road.
Other work continued on installing new pipes, cleaning drainage tunnels and installing clarifiers at ongoing flood-mitigation projects.
