Dr. Weerawat Kharkhai (Deputy Mayor of Pattaya city) said that “We hope to finish the Monkey Creeks Project before the coming rainy season in order to direct water in nearby areas from flowing towards Pattaya city. There are 5 drainage ways which should direct the flood water into the sea but there are problems with them which are being inspected so if the drainage ditch isn’t completed in time Pattaya will flood again but its hoped that the construction of Monkey Creek will be able to hold around 1 million cubic metres of water will be finished in time and will prevent any major flooding.
