Speaking to The Phuket News this morning (Feb 12), Deputy Chief Executive of Kamala sub-district Administrative Organisation (OrBorTor) Nopporn Karuna said, “We have been informed of the untreated wastewater appearing at Kamala Beach, which appears to be flowing from the Ketnee Canal. I have asked Phuket Provincial Public Health Office to inspect the area.

“I believe the cause of this problem is hotels and rental houses in the area releasing untreated wastewater into the canal. However, it will take about fifteen days for us to clarify this,” he said.

In the past we have had untreated wastewater problems at both the Ketnee and Pakbang canals, however, the problem at Pak Bang Canal has already been solved,” he explained.

If hotels in the area are found to have been releasing untreated wastewater into the canals, and if they do not stop doing so within seven to fifteen days, they will be required to temporarily close and solve their wastewater treatment issues.

That is just the initial penalty,” he concluded.

All the khlongs, creeks, streams, everything in Kamala receive  illegal discharges all day every day. Hotels, restaurants, houses, etc.  It doesn't take a genius to figure out, just anyone that can identify blue PVC pipes along any waterway.  It is usually the first step of a project, and nothing is ever done about it.  There is no treatment in Kamala, so all illegal discharges end up at the b...

The old hotel that is being renovated at Chalong 100 metres from the pier just off soi sukkee has blue plastic pipes from its waste water straight into the klong, and this is before it opens! Why no anonymous email address to send information to someone??

Same same every year in the high season. So far nothing has been done about it.  Hopefully this time they will take it seriously and close the hotels.

It is impossible for hotels and rented houses ( people who rent will do nothing about it, it's owners business) to stop untreated polluted waste water flow in 15 days
Technically impossible in 15 day time frame

So 28 February, hotels close, rental house become empty. Yes?
Anyone believe that?
Let me guess, from 01 March the polluters are going to pay a pollution fee to study the problem
