Director of the Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) Phuket Marine and Coastal Management Department, Mr Watcharin Thintalang, yesterday (Feb 15) ordered fellow Phuket DMRC officer Mr Nared Choophueng to report to Koh Yao Police Station in Phang Nga province and file charges against the owner of the Nonthasak Marine Restaurant, Mr Sansearn Sringam, after it was found on Feb 7 that untreated wastewater from the restaurant and its toilets was being released into the island’s surrounding waters.

It should be noted that in May 2016, Marine officials ordered the removal of facilities and structures used for tourist activities from all three of the Koh Khai islands: Koh Khai Nok, Koh Khai Nui and Koh Khai Nai.

On May 24, 2016, Suchart Rattanareangsri, then Director of the DMCR’s Conservation division told The Phuket News that officials were clearing all beach umbrellas and beach chairs in the area. In addition, shops and restaurants on the Koh Khai islands were to be removed and that the Royal Forest Department has been contacted to carry out the removal of these structures.

Well of course they discharge all their wastewater to the ocean...why would it be any different than any other ignorant business owner.  Thais don't give a damn about this... not business owners, and not Thai officials. The only people that care are tourists... and this is the kind of thing that will send them off to nicer places and better maintained environments.  It is just stupid what goes on here.

Wonder or the Phuket Governor is going to look into that corruption ( or call it 'incompetence') NOW!  Not may next year, please.

QUOTE IN THE ARTICLE
It should be noted that in May 2016, Marine officials ordered the removal of facilities and structures used for tourist activities from all three of the Koh Kai islands:
1/- Koh Khai Nok,
2/- Koh Khai Nui,
3/- and Koh Khai Nai.

Some money given to the right people in the Thai Administration may help a lot to continue the business as usual.

Very ..Usual Phuket beach water pollution.., Everywhere on Phuket are untreated wastewater releases.

Patong sells it as 'bloom'.
Kamala Beach, BangTao beach, Karon Beach etc, etc. All have black/brown water releases by pipes releasing it in open water.

'Quality tourists', staying in star-hotels, should let their children only swim in hotel pools.
