In celebration of World Environment Day, Mr. Ingo Domaschke, General Manager of OZO Chaweng Samui (in front of the OZO sign), together with Khun Methee Boonsuk (left-hand side of Mr. Domaschke), Chief of Koh Samui Watershed Management Unit*, and a 2nd damngroup of volunteers successfully constructed their second check dam in 2016. This is the fifth completed dam following the launch of this initiative in January 2015. The construction of this check dam has received great support from staff members, guests and local business partners, including Rung Ruang Sub Samui, IT Club, Buffalo Tours, Funny Day Safari, Billy Billy Samui Travel & Tour and Avitez Ltd.

This is part of OZO’s CSR project, titled OZO for H2O by OZO Chaweng Samui, which focuses on the environment, particularly on water, to help conserve and preserve the island’s natural water resources from rainfall through the construction and maintenance of check dams. The check dams aim to help regulate water flow, increase the level of underground water and reduce soil erosion for the benefit of local communities.

OZO for H2O by OZO Chaweng Samui, in partnership with Koh Samui Watershed Management, is committed to build three check dams each year in Khao Pom, Samui’s highest hill within the tropical rainforest. The goal is to raise 15,000 THB each year (5,000 THB per dam). Staff members, guests and business partners are invited to get involved through various fundraising activities

* Koh Samui Watershed Management Unit operates under the Department of National Parks, Wildlife and Plant Conservation
