Thailand’s Royal Irrigation Department (RID) sent an urgent letter to Chainat’s provincial governor today (Saturday), asking him to warn people living on both banks of the Chao Phraya River to brace for a 20cm rise in water levels, due to the diversion of runoffs into the irrigation canal system instead of allowing the water to flow into the river.

 

RID Director-General Prapit Chanma explained that the diversion of water, at 376 cubic metres/second, is necessary because large areas downstream of the Chao Phraya Dam are heavily flooded, causing widespread hardship to people living there.

 

He maintained that these people will need urgent help to protect them from more flooding if too much water is allowed to flow through the dam.

Open the dam and let Bangkok know what it feels like to be waist deep in water, something a little more positive might get done before next years rainy season.
