Rainy season is still a couple months away, but Pattaya officials are preparing now for summer storms.

Orders went out March 3 to arrange teams to ready pumps and open flood gates to drain water quickly and arrange staff to collect garbage at pump stations to avert blockages.



Checks also were ordered for equipment and electrical systems, canals dredged and storm-drainage routes cleaned to prevent flooding.

City workers clear drainage channels blocking waterways on the beach and install pumps to drain floodwater.



Sanitation staff clean garbage out of pump stations to assist drainage.


Officials survey the area, check water flow, and clean drainage pipes.
