All large- and medium-sized dams in the country are discharging water as planned in preparing to take more rainwater expected to be brought about by tropical storm “Bebinca”, Office of National Water Resources (ONWR) director-general Somkiat Prajamwong said on Wednesday.

 

He said special attention is now on Kaeng Krachan dam in Phetchaburi, Srinagarind and Vajiralongkorn dams in Kanchanaburi, Ratchaprapa dam in Surat Thani and Khun Dan Prakan Chon dam in Nakhon Nayok.

 

Khun Dan Prakan Chon dam will be under close watch this week after 100 milimetres of rain poured on mountains on Aug 13, sending run-off that caused sudden flooding at two waterfalls in Nakhon Nayok.
