Higher Floodwalls to Protect Historical Sites

Recommended Posts



AYUTTHAYA, Oct 5 (TNA) – The Fine Arts Department mobilized its workers to raise floodwalls to protect archaeological sites as the levels of Chao Phraya and Pa Sak Rivers were rising.


At Wat Chaiwatthanaram which is the lowest site, its 150-meter-long floodwalls were elevated by another 50 centimeters for the total height of 2 meters and its top is 1.50m higher than the level of the Chao Phraya River. Sandbags were placed to reinforce the western floodwall which had collapsed in 2011.

Not the manner in which the sand is bagged and the bags randomly dumped along and existing wall. A waste of time and effort. Stand by with the buckets and mops!

Maybe a boat too.
