Water levels in Phuket reservoirs stabilise as weather improves

Water levels in Phuket reservoirs stabilise as weather improves

PHUKET: The island’s three main reservoirs are still full to the brim with water, but the situation gradually improves due to less rainfall, the Phuket office of the Public Relations Department (PR Phuket) reported today (Oct 22).

The water volume level in all three reservoirs has decreased compared to yesterday and tends to decrease further due to the decrease in rainfall in the area. It is expected that water discharge can be stopped on Oct 23,” PR Phuket said.

Yet, according to the announcement posted on Oct 22, the water levels decreased only in two reservoirs out of three. The most recent data was as follows:

Bang Wad Reservoir in Kathu was 102.5% full, with 10.45mn cubic meters of water (down from 10.47mn cubic meters the day before, see report here). The amount of rainwater received during the previous 24 hours totaled 8.5mm (down from 39.5mm).

Bang Neow Dum Reservoir in Srisoonthorn was 102% full, with 7.20 cubic meters of water (down from 7.23mn cubic meters the day before). The amount of rainwater received during the previous 24 hours totaled 7.4mm (down from 44.7mm).

The Southern Meteorological Center, West Coast, based near Phuket International Airport, recorded only light to medium rains on Oct 22.

The amount of rainfall recorded by the three Phuket stations from 7am yesterday (Oct 21) through 7am today (Oct 22) was as follows:

  • Mai Khao – 6.3 mm of rainfall;
  • Thalang Town – 23.6mm;
  • Mueang Phuket – 21mm.
