It is certainly gratifying to see how well Pattaya has the flooding problems under control.

Here's Wednesday, July 22 after a 1 hour deluge:



Why am I not surprised?

Heavy rain brings more flooding and traffic chaos to Pattaya City-Video

By Adam Judd

Wednesday, 22 July 2020

Heavy rain in Pattaya City this afternoon caused major flooding and traffic delays on many Pattaya roads.

The rain hit mid afternoon and lasted for about an hour and a half. At times, the level of the rainfall was quite heavy.

The heaviest flooding was reported on Sukhumvit Road, Pattaya Beach Road, Pattaya Third Road and areas with low elevation such as South Pattaya, Nong Yai, the railway road, Soi Khao Talo and Soi Khao Noi.

Water found on road surfaces ranged in height, with particularly deep water at several feet deep on Sukhumvit Road in front of the Mueang Pattaya 4 School.

On Pattaya Beach Road, water had been released to the sea as there was major flooding. Portions of the beach appeared to suffer from flood related damage as well.

Traffic remained backed up along major roads for several hours. Traffic police were sent to multiple areas to brave the storms and help direct traffic.

The Pattaya City Mayor, meanwhile has said that the drainage projects designed to fix this issue that have been ongoing for a year is not yet completed. Additionally, several city water pumps are currently not working and are waiting for repair parts that are back-ordered and in the process of securing. He stated the project was delayed by several months when the city had all construction work stop due to the Covid19 Coronavirus situation.

Enough is enough. Full steam ahead with the monorail. Let's soar above this city hall incompetence. Until it's time to get off. Sigh!

I wish it was enough. Unfortunately regarding the reservoir it isn't. Even with these rain storms and flooding, the water management is saying the reservoir is still at a critically low level and they cannot even hope to discontinue the water rationing until September - if there has been enough rain to bring the reservoir back to normal levels by then.

Again, why am I not surprised?
