PATTAYA – June 24, 2014 [Pattaya Daily News];- at 13.00 pm. At the road along the railway Mr Ittipol Khunpleum-mayor of Pattaya- was accompanied with Dr.Weerawat Khakhai-deputy mayor of Pattaya- and Pattaya congress men to inspect the progress of the construction of the flood barrier which is to prevent the water draining from Nong Prue and inner Pattaya which had caused flooding in many areas in Pattaya. Firstly they decided to dredge Pattaya Tai canal in order to allow water to drain into the sea more freely. They had also put new drainpipes connecting to the old drainpipes plus they have also constructed a barrier in BanNernRotFai village in order to solve the flooding in Soi Khaonoi road, Soi Khao Talo road and BanNernRotFai village which are located on low lying land. Therefore the Pattaya congress had asked the state railway for some space near the railway to construct a barrier.

Mr Ittipol revealed that Pattaya city is continually growing with more building and roads being constructed which is causing the natural flow to be changed resulting in flooding. They had tried to solve the problem before without success but now they have hired professionals from King Mongkut’s Institute of Technology North Bangkok university to solve this problem.They expected that the water that drains from other areas into Pattaya is the main cause of the flooding. It’s expected that the barrier can solve the flood problem. Mr Ittipol added that they will construct the barrier in other areas in the future.
