The Office of the Ombudsman has followed up on the excavation of a reservoir in Nakhon Sri Thammarat province in order to provide adequate water during dry season.

A team of officials led by Ombudsman Boon Tapanadul visited Tha Sala district to inspect excavation work on Ban Sai Ko Pond. The pond will serve as a local water source for villagers during the dry season.

The excavation work was prompted by complaints from some 4,000 villagers, who suffer from water shortages. Relevant authorities studied the possibility of dredging the local pond to enhance water storage capacity. Excavation will be followed by landscaping to enhance public access to the water source. The landscaping process is expected to be completed by August 12th.

Ban Sai Ko Pond is an man-made water source that was first created by the Department of Fisheries in 1988 for public use. The new, larger pond will supply water to five villages in Nakhon Sri Thammarat for general consumption and agricultural activities.
