The Royal Irrigation Department (RID) said the water levels in four major dams of the Chao Praya River are enough for domestic consumption and sustaining ecosystems until July.

RID Director-General Suthep Noipairoj said there is currently a total of 2.2 billion cubic meters of usable water left in the major dams. A total of 18 million cubic meters of water is being released from these dams for domestic use and to preserve ecosystems.

The RID will strictly follow a water distribution plan it has put in place to conserve water and has assured there will be enough water for Songkran revelers to enjoy. However, the department head continued to urge everyone to use water wisely.
