The developer behind East Pattaya’s Eakmongkol Village 8 has been told to lay new wastewater pipes after complaints that raw sewage was flooding nearby Pattaya neighborhoods.
Pattaya Deputy Mayor Verawat Khakhay and Nongprue Deputy Mayor Niyom Thiengtham inspected the housing development July 14, discovering that wastewater was flowing into Darapan Village 3.
Wastewater from East Pattaya’s Eakmongkol Village 8 has been flooding nearby villages, causing an overwhelming smell. The developer has been told lay new wastewater pipes to fix the problem.
Eakmongkol Village 8 is under the jurisdiction of Nongprue Sub-district, but the sewage was flowing into Pattaya City property.
The Department of Natural Resources and Environment in Chonburi also was contacted to investigate the issue.
Pattaya and Nongprue officials met and decided that Eakmongkol’s management must hire an excavator to dig deeper canals for the sewage system while they create at least two large manholes, including a double meter-wide sewage tunnel.
The process will take at least one month.
