Thailand:Thai PM visits water treatment plant after floods
Laaska News Nov. 9 ,2011
Thailand’s prime minister has visited a water treatment plant in Bangkok to meet 2 Japanese engineers working there to protect the water supply system from floods.
Yingluck Shinawatra visited the plant on Wednesday. She was told by one of the engineers that there is no problem with the quality of the city’s tap water, and that they will continue trying to make the best use of their experience and know-how.
Foul smells from muddy tap water are now said to have eased in the capital after authorities used chemicals to handle the problem. But concerns about the water’s quality remain.
Floodwaters in Thailand are moving south toward a major canal some 5 kilometers from central Bangkok. Water levels on Wednesday were higher than those on the previous day.
