Drinking Water Supply During Floods

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

"In Sing Buri, tambon Ton Pho in Muang district and tambon Hua Pa in Phromburi district reported the DO level at 0.0-1.0mg/L, while Suphan Buri's Bang Pla Ma district reported 1.6-5mg/L."

 

What the hell is the point of printing something like that in a newspaper without any reference to what that means? I'll bet less than 1% of people reading it would have even the slightest idea.

 

"I don't know if this affects you"

 

No idea either. Luckily we still have enough bottled water / pepsi, so we'll just stick to that instead for now.

 

Sanuk!

Worasart Apaipong, deputy director-general of the Pollution Control Department, said yesterday that the water quality at the canal in front of the Bang Sue District Office was very deteriorated, with 1.3 milligrams per litre of dissolved oxygen (DO).

:hmmm:

 

Bang Sue district office is not that far from me. Which klong is he talking about - Klong Prapha? It is moving faster than I have ever seen before. It has spilled into surrounding areas, but just looks like ordinary flood waters. Note that the city's water comes from this canal - and is then purified.

 

Klong Prapha last week. It is about 10cm higher right now, not that much.
