Rawai Municipality officials confirmed to The Phuket News that the council started providing the free water last Friday (Mar 29).

The water-relief campaign has been officially set to continue until May 31, by which time the annual rains brought on by the southwest monsoon winds are expected to have arrived, explained Pannee Raknai, who serves as the Rawai Municipality Chief Administrative Officer (Palad).

“Rawai Municipality has begin rolling out free emergency water supply to residents in Rawai,” Ms Pannee said.

“People without water can ask for help by calling the Department of Disaster Prevention and Mitigation (DDPM) office at Rawai Municipality on 076-613800. They will be available every day,” she said.

“Alternatively, people can apply in person at the Rawai Municipality office,” Ms Pannee added.

“We will deliver the water to the resident’s home,” she said.

Well water on Phuket in many areas may expected to be contaminated. Specially when houses are built on former rubbish , polluted garbage dump places.  A water test by foreign company will tell you everything,. Crystal clear.

I wonder if my aquarium fish dying from using the well water has anything to do with my neighbor's  ignorance about use of paraquat, a carcinogenic herbicide - as he lets his kids scamper about while aiming the spray at me.

Is it not about time to charter water tanker vessels that can bring each voyage 8-10,000 metric tons of water to Phuket, and refill the water reservoirs through temporarily water pipe lines?

Huh?  Does Phuket now have a water crisis or not? So far, according Governor's Office, NOT. So?
Referring to a RTP officer who declared that pick up trucks are allowed to have 1000 ltr waterdrums on board during Songkran to 'sprinkle' water while riding Phuket roads now sounds ridiculous, or at least funny.  Or 'reality ignoring'. The usual ostrich behavior.
