Phuket health officials to test Surin Beach brown outflow

PHUKET: Health officials will conduct tests on water exiting an outflow pipe behind a hotel at Surin Beach despite being informed that it carries only rainwater run-off. Concern from officials follows the pipe spewing a plume of brown water onto the beach last Friday (Sept 30).

Phatsorn Wisuthiwatcharakul, Chief of Public Health and Environment Division at Cherng Talay Tambon Administration Organisation (OrBorTor), inspected the pipe on Wednesday (Oct 5) after being informed of last Friday’s “fountain of brown” surging from the pipe. (See story here.) 

“We inspected the pipe and it does not belong to the hotel,” Ms Phatsorn told The Phuket News.

“It also is not one of ours (Cherng Talay OrBorTor). The pipe was installed by Cherng Talay Municipality, and their officers told us that the pipe was installed many years ago to drain excess rainwater to the sea,” she said.

“Regardless, we have collected some water samples to check for any contamination. Cherng Talay Municipality has been advised on this matter,” Ms Phatsorn said.

Fellow Cherng Talay public health official Nuttapon Pakdee, who is assisting Ms Phatsorn in her investigation, urged people to report any similar concerns about dirty water flowing into public areas.

“If anyone notices or suspects water pollution in our area, please report it to Cherng Talay OrBorTor Public Health and Environment Office by calling 076-271096 or you can file a complaint by email directly to me at jj_jack7582@hotmail,” Mr Nuttapon said.

I am willing to bet the everything will be "No pobpem", regardless of what the tests show, as Phuket officials have consistently either fudged their findings, or have refused to release them.  While they are testing, they really ought to check the blue lines that are discharging from the new hotel.  And why not test both of the pipes that are still discharging filth water onto the sand and creating black water pools during the high season.
