Raw sewage dumped in Pong tapioca field

PATTAYA:--Pong authorities are hunting for the driver of a sewer-cleaning truck that dumped its load of raw sewage in a tapioca field.

 

Mayor Suntorn Ketthong and his deputies went to the field off Soi Ponglang 4 Dec. 21 to inspect the damage. The sewage was dumped on a sloping tapioca field and ran downhill, spreading the stinking offal over a 500-meter area.

 

Pong water trucks washed down the area, but the damage to crops and noses lingered.

 

Suntorn issued a warning to all area pump trucks against illegal dumping.

 

Sub-district Clerk Kittisak Monkaew vowed to track down and prosecute the polluter.

Its maybe slightly better than  dumping it straight into the sea...where most of it goes now anyway !!!

Unusual, it usually gets pumped into rice paddies at night up here in Isaan, no evidence, so no one cares. Something to think about as you tuck into your Hom mali....

I had my tanks emptied a few months back and wondered where it would get dumped. Same as the piles of rubbish in nearby casava fields.

It all gets sold and dumped on sugar cane land up here in Isaan where I live.

I live in Isaan too - so that's where my local "Lavender Wagon" empties its load. I am diabetic and must not eat sugar - thank God!!

It should be put on fields. It is what the world did for thousands of years. IF it was treated properly, very little risk and better for the environment than dumping it into water courses, treated or not.

 

We grow all our veggies organically (i.e. with shit).
