Mae Kha Canal Dredged To Help Reduce Flooding

by CityNews




CityNews – Authorities are busy dredging the Mae Kha Canal, following last month’s flood on the 19th-21st May that saw many parts of the city under water. While clearing the Mae Kha and the city drains is the responsibility of the municipality, many other organisations have had to step in to help the mayor, who seems to have left the dredging rather late due in part to complacency over the past few years’ drought.


Governor Pawin Chamniprasert announced that following directions from the Prime Minister who has asked all provinces to prepare for the heavy rains expected this year, he has set up working groups and has also put notices all over the city asking people not to throw garbage down drains, as this is the major cause of the flooding.
