More than three months after 100 city workers removed dirty rocks from Wong Amat Beach, workers returned to do it again.
Sanitation officer Sunya Thupthimsree led workers to scoop up smelly stones washed ashore by the tide. He said tons of rocks are collected each visit, making it clear tidal patterns are changing, in part due to human behavior. The stones pose danger to swimmers and beachgoers and need regular removal.
Norwegian tourist Margareth Sumstad said she liked that the city was being conscientious about beach maintenance.
Similar work is also performed on Jomtien Beach, the Naklua bridge area and around the Dusit curve on Pattaya Beach.
