There wasn’t much rubbish in the canal, but there were a lot of dead fish, some were rotting and sending strong odors over homes nearby.

An unidentified foreign resident said recently a quantity of “black water” suspected to be wastewater flowed from an unknown source into the canal.

He said he posted his beef in English on an online forum and called the Pattaya Call Center, but no one from city hall responded.
