The Pattaya Business & Tourism Association urged members to promote water conservation as a key city reservoir dries up.
President Sinchai Wattanasartsathorn noted that the Mabprachan Reservoir was running dangerously low due to a dryer than normal rainy season. While Pattaya gets water from numerous sources, the lake is a key source of hard water for East Pattaya and the drought is putting pressure on the Provincial Waterworks Authority to continue to supply all the water the city needs.
PBTA advisor Sa-nga Kitsamret said Pattaya uses about 220,000 cu. meters of water a day on weekends and holidays, putting a strain on the entire system.
(L to R) PBTA president Sinchai Wattanasartsathorn, Deputy Mayor Verawat Khakhay, PBTA advisor Sa-nga Kitsamret, and Deputy Mayor Ronakit Ekasingh lead the PBTA monthly meeting where they once again urged members to promote water conservation as a key city reservoir dries up.
Should the rest of the rainy season not get significantly wetter, he said the PWA will take water from the Mappraporn Reservoir in Rayong and Marpwaisom canal in Banglamung to supplement the supply from Mabprachan.
