Eastern drought to be eased by 36km water pipeline

The Office of National Water Resources (ONWR) will oversee construction of a 36-kilometre network of pipes to ease drought in Thailand’s eastern provinces, especially the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC) spanning Rayong, Chonburi and Chachoengsao, ONWR secretary-general Somkiat Prachamwong announced on Thursday (May 7).

The project is a collaboration between the Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand, East Water, the Royal Irrigation Department, Provincial Waterworks Authority, and general citizens, he added.
The 36.2km-long EEC water pipe network will be divided into three sections.
The first will run from Phan Thong water treatment plant to Phan Thong water station (10.5km) in Chonburi, the second from the station to the water booster-pressure station (9.8km), and the third from the booster station to the Well Grow Industrial Estate (15.9km) in Bang Pakong District, Chachoengsao.
Pipe-laying for the network will be finished by the end of this June, Somkiat said.
