Bangkok’s four giant sewers will be cleared of trash to avoid flooding this rainy season, while city governor Aswin Kwanmuang has ordered the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to collect garbage across the city, sweep up the dregs and check if all the water pumps are working.

The capital’s giant sewers, which are up to 5 metres wide, run through the canals and are mainly responsible for directing floodwaters from the city to the Chao Phraya River.

Bangkok’s giant sewers run through Khlong Prem Prachakorn, the Makkasan Lake, Khlong Saen Saep up to Khlong Lat Phrao and Khlong Bang Sue.
