New water pipes laid on Thepprasit Soi 17


Pattaya has begun laying wider water pipes on Thepprasit Soi 17.

Workers from contractor Sukasem Co. began digging up the old lines Oct. 2 with plans to replace them with 30-centimeter-wide piping along the entire street from Ton Pho Market to the Hanuman statue.

The work actually has been ongoing for a month and is estimated to be complete by around Oct. 16.

The previous 15-cm. piping was old and would often break, causing water outages to local residents, contractors said.
