Nai Thon residents call for action over untreated wastewater

PHUKET: A reporter from The Phuket News was informed by angry villagers in Nai Thon this morning (Feb 19) that untreated wastewater is allegedly being released into the sea at Nai Thon Beach and stinking up the area.

The residents are demanding Sakoo Municipality stand up, investigate and come up with a solution for the black wastewater being pumped into the sea.

The issue of wastewater has been around a long time. It is wastewater from many parts of the community including shops and hotels,” Thanapong Kuekenung, village headman of Moo 4, Sakhu told The Phuket News today.

Originally, there was not much, however, it has became worse as the number of tourists has increased and there are no agencies able to handle such problems,” he added.

As local people, we want local authorities including both Sakoo District Administrative Office and the hotel operators to check the sources and resolve the problem before it intensifies. We want the beach returned to its original condition.

Residents and tourists are not satisfied,” he said.

The black, smelly water, appearing to flow from an area with a hotel, restaurants and shops on Nai Thon Beach, attracted the attention of tourists this morning as they either went to swim in the sea or just walked by the area.

It is going to take a long time before the residents, tourists see the beach to return to its original condition
It is all about tea money, kick backs receiving officials, paid to talk only about untreated black wastewater, but their hands are tight/filled
And the willing ones simply have not the professional skills to handle it
Keep clean is not thai, just dump/let's flow

This is certainly nothing new here, but it is now becoming a popular complaint. I was actually there yesterday, and the north end of the beach looked like a freshly flushed it has for at least 5 years. Good for Thanapong Kuekenung for standing up and demanding something be done about it. There are certain higher end hotels at the north end that are major contributors to this mess.
