The Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA) conducted safety inspections of a drainage tunnel under Bang Sue Canal, the authorities said.

On July 9, Samrerng Chiewchukul, MEA deputy governor, together with officials from Bangkok Water Drainage Office inspected the electrical system in the drainage tunnel under Bang Sue Canal located in Dusit district to ensure that equipment is working optimally and safely during the rainy season.

“As the provider of electricity and related services in Bangkok, Nonthaburi and Samut Prakarn areas, MEA is committed to ensuring that all facilities related to public utilities are functioning at 100 per cent capacity, especially during rainy season when flash flood and heavy rains may damage electrical equipment,” he said. “MEA has dispatched staff to monitor 10 water drainage facilities and 492 drainage tunnels in Bangkok and surrounding areas to provide emergency services in case of equipment malfunctions at anytime of the day.”
