Picture: Thai PBS   It's been a perennial question since some Pattaya expats now retired were knee high to grasshoppers!   Why does their preferred retirement home flood all the ti

Get 10 x 30TKomatsu's in and 300 labourers and 30kms of 2ft Humes conc pipes in and it'll be fixed in 6 months forever. 

It's not rocket science ....   just action and do it.

Rain is not necessary the cause of flooding. Water management is the cause of flooding or should I say 'the lack of water management'?

Build on natural flood plains and over run-offs, and this is what happens.

 

It's been happening in Pattaya and other towns in Thailand for decades, but a lot of new housing projects in England (e.g.) have the same problems.

When it's raining, it might result in flooding - sure, especially when people decides to settle in areas that are natural water reservoirs in heavy rain periods, as after a few years with less rain these areas seems to be safe, and those settlers furthermore splash concrete out everywhere, so the water cannot drain into soil - it's pure logic, which however is overlooked quite many places around the World, not only Pattaya...🧐
