The scheduled blackout tomorrow will be from 9am to 4:30pm and affect all homes and businesses from Cherng Talay Police Station to the SuperCheap store along the Baan Don-Cherng Talay Rd.

The power outage was scheduled to allow works to be carried out on installing new high-voltage power cables, the Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) Thalang office explained in its announcement. (See story here.)

“Tbe power outages by the PEA is the reason for the water supply shortages and will cause water pressure to be low or completely shut off during this time,” the PWA has now announced.

It is not in the City. It are the Phuket west coast beach areas that are already hit hard by beach pollution, water shortage, and electric black outs.

"the clowns still complain,: Editor, more name calling. More "advanced" countries isolate a small area and often install interruption cables to bypass the are being worked on, but due to unsafe work practices, and lack of knowledge, does not happen in Thailand. We wait for more unnecessary name calling, from the serial name caller.

Unbelievable.  The city is installing electricity infrastructure and apologised for the disruption, yet the clowns still complain.

Thailand 4.0.
Phuket Smart City.
Puff story versus real life.

Inventive!  Using many power outage to block people having water supply during hot days. Covering the fact that there is hardly water left. And all the many present power outages save water consumption. Is that the way 'officials', with butts tight, handle the short of water?  A new smart form of water management?
