The broken pipe under Soi Chaiyapruek has caused two months of flooding at Ekmongkol Village and residents say they have called both city hall and the Provincial Waterworks Authority several times, only to see their concerns ignored.

Locals say they cannot understand how authorities have allowed the situation to persist for so long, wasting precious water while causing tap-water shortages for nearby homes.
