Phuket woman gets one-month Bt16K water bill for 'empty' house

Nattapat Sermchotdamrong said: “My water bill in September is Bt16,570.29. My family and I live in another province, so no-one was in the house.
“I can pay the bill, but I am curious how the water meter went up to 541,000 litres in one month while in August I only paid Bt32.10. 
“Now the water meter of my house has been removed. We don’t have water to use. The PWA has checked the water pipes outside, there is no water leak.
“I have presented witnesses and documents to the Phuket Waterworks Authority (PWA) but they still insist that I must pay the bill otherwise they will sue me.”
