The Office of the Ombudsman paid an inspection visit to Surat Thani Province this weekend to follow up on the progress of a submarine pipeline construction project.
Siracha Vongsarayankura, the Chairman of the Office of the Ombudsman, along with his subordinates, traveled to Koh Samui to inspect the installation of a submarine pipeline. The 2.164 billion baht project is expected to be finished by February 2017.
The chairman assured the public that the construction is being implemented in the most environmentally-friendly manner. Once completed, the new pipeline is expected to increase the province’s tourism capacity.
Mr Siracha also paid a visit to a landfill where a waste incineration plant is located and asked about the well-being of local people in the area. He was informed by local officials that Koh Samui produces up to 150 tons of waste on a daily basis due to the growing tourism industry.
He was also told that provincial authorities had been encouraging people to separate household trash in order to make it easier for the province to manage everyday waste.
