More than 100 city workers removed dirty rocks in a cleanup of Wong Amat Beach.
Environment Department Director Suthee Thupnonghee led workers to scoop up smelly stones washed ashore by the tide. They posed hazards to tourists and gave off a foul odor from decaying algae.
Wong Amat is the first of the area beaches to get a scrubbing. Similar work is planned on Jomtien Beach, the Naklua bridge area and around the Dusit curve on Pattaya Beach.
Suthee said seasonal currents were responsible for bringing the stones ashore. The rock will be used as landfill in the national sports stadium site in Jomtien Beach.
