Pattaya city councilor Somchai Chaona and public sanitary officials inspected the flooded are at Soi Wat Thamsamakee on June the 8th following a huge storm.
The water was knee high and was flooding into some houses.
Residents have to go about their daily business
There was nowhere for the water to escape and was creating havoc for the local residents.
Officials used a pump to drain the water out of the Soi and Somchai said the problem cannot be solved easily as the Soi was owned by private owners and there is no plan in the near future to lay pipe that would drain the water away.
He said that the electric water pump will have to be used from time to time.
