Pattaya officials say their work to solve flooding paying dividends

PATTAYA:--Pattaya officials said their efforts to dredge canals and clear sewers are paying off as flooding from an April 1 storm drained in as little as 27 minutes.

 

City spokesman Pinit Maneerat documented the progress in battling Pattaya’s chronic flooding, noting that 90 minutes of heavy rain that afternoon caused only temporary inconvenience, instead of hours of gridlock and property damage.

 

On Soi Nongyai, the typically flooded spot near Pattaya School No. 7 was covered in water at 2:15 p.m., but was drained by 2:42, or just 27 minutes.

 

On Beach Road at Soi 6/1 and on Third Road at the Mum Aroi intersection – two often-inundated spots – city workers scrambled to clear garbage and leaves from drains and the water was gone within an hour.

 

Pinit said the average time across the city to drain the water was 30 minutes.


Rain fell steadily in Pattaya from 2-3:30 p.m., coming down at 26 millimeters per hour on Pratamnak Hill and 45 mm. per hour on Third Road. Other places were hit even harder.
