DWR excavates 3,000 ponds as rainwater storage

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has completed the excavation of ponds and natural water sources in 3,095 projects for the storage of rainwater, and checked up on excavation sites done by private companies.

The DWR Director-General Jatuporn Buruspat has revealed that the department has completed the excavation of ponds and natural water sources in 3,095 projects, approximately 75 percent of all projects planned by the DWR. These projects will be utilized as rainwater storages for further use.

He has said that 2,214 villages in 60 districts of 17 provinces have continuously experienced the drought crisis for the past 5 years, while the lack of raw water to feed the tap water production during the drought has also caused widespread concern. The DWR has come up with the solution by creating water shortcuts to the Sum Lae water pump in Pathum Thani, with more measures considered to facilitate the production of tap water from the Klong Maha Sawat water pump.http://www.samuitimes.com/wp-admin/post-new.php
