Pair follow royal advice on flooding

Royal Irrigation Department chief Samart Chokkanapitak and Bangkok Governor Apirak Kosayodhin yesterday said they would follow His Majesty the King's suggestion for better water management to tackle flooding.

Samart admitted His Majesty was correct in saying that flawed water management led to recent floods that caused more damage than the 1995 floods.

He said he would discuss improving rainfall forecasts with related agencies including the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand, the Meteorological Department and the Hydro and Agro Informatics Institute.

Samart said the authority still had to watch for flooding in Bangkok and Samut Prakan this month because of high sea tides.

He insisted officials had been on alert for heavy rain caused by tropical storm Durian that might reach the South today.

Apirak said the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration's job was to watch for flooding in the capital, so it would follow His Majesty's advice and work with the Office of the Royal Development Projects Board and related agencies to prevent a repeat.
