After heavy rain this week, Srinakarin Dam in Kanchanaburi's Sri Sawat district has increased its water-releasing by 1 million cubic metres per day until September 30, as it now contains 91.8 per cent its capacity.

 

Dam director Prasert Inthap said the dam would release 29 million cubic metres per day and the smaller downstream reservoir at Tha Thung Na would release about 32 million cubic metres until September 30. 

 

He said any change in the dam's water release would be notified to agencies and residents at least three days in advance. Dam checks would also be changed from twice a week to every day, he added. He said there was nothing to currently cause concern. 

 

Prasert said people could monitor the live feed of the dam athttp://water.egat.co.th or the EGAT Water app.

 

Vajiralongkorn Dam in Thong Pha Phum district, which now is at 94 per cent capacity, also said it would release 58 million cubic metres per day until September 30.
