The water situation in Samui is a matter of concern since tourism is rapidly growing which is leading to a demand for water of 150-200 liters for each person per day, while the Provincial Waterworks Authority can’t supply water at such a level.

With concerns rising that Samui might soon face water shortages, the authority has thus set up the awareness event to try to prevent a dire water shortage in the future.
