The PWA has announced that water supply will be limited to very weak or completely shut-off in parts of Karon and Patong as there will be now electricity at the RO (reverse-osmosis) plant north of Karon Beach on Nov 18.

The outage is expected to continue off from 9am to 5pm. People are urged to collect any water they may require during the period beforehand. The PWA will restore mains water supply as soon as possible.

The areas to be affected include Patak Rd. from Centara to Karon Municipality (including Soi Patak 16-24) and from Le Meridien to Phra Metta Rd, Rat-U-Thit 200 Pi Rd, and Nanai Rd.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused,” the PWA said.

For more information, contact the Phuket PWA on 076-319173, 082-7901634 or 1662.

These idiots couldn't get a generator to power the RO plant for one day? No, in "world class" Phuket, one day without water is to be expected. Just like no sidewalks or proper roads, no pedestrian crosswalks, garbage everywhere you look, aggressive touts, loud motorbikes, taxi mafia, traffic jams....etc etc etc.
