Polluted Moat Concerns Citizens

CityNews – Images of an algae filled moat with dead fish have been circulating online resulting in calls on authorities to do more to maintain the city’s moat.

 

Images of the moat water from Katam corner to Ku Huang corner show very dirty water, infested with green algae and dead fish.

 

The dirty moat comes less than one month after the alledged ‘cleaning’ of the moat water for Songkran, which has resulted in netizens expressing concern that the water was not as clean as authorities suggested and that it is an eyesore for Chiang Mai given the high number of tourists passing through. According to local reporters, the water is also giving off a bad smell.

Authorities have began investigating the water and claim the hot weather has resulted in the latest algae bloom which reduced oxygen in the water that can threaten the life of fish and other aquatic animals.

Pump compressed air into it then!!! The solution is too easy so they have to spend effort finding excuses instead. 

The moats and central lake of Roi et have diffuser mats that seem to be doing the job, and it's hotter in Isaan than up there in the hills.

Perhaps it's just my imagination, but I seem to remember this happening at the start of summer EVERY year...  Nothing new here.

If there's no threat of foreign armies of elephant mounted troops invading the city, fill the damn thing in, make the roads wider, parking, and rots and rots of noodle shops.  :unsure:

Confirmed contract with Disney for new feature attraction. One boat goes clockwise, the other goes counter-clockwise. Keeps tourist traffic off the street. I for one salute our new Disney overlords.

It's hard enough maintaining a swimming pool and that has filters, vacuums and a raft of chemicals when needed.

 

I'm not even sure how you would keep something like a giant, stagnant, non flowing, dirt bottomed moat clean.

 

Lot's of experts on TF seem  to have it figured though.

 

My pool still goes green now and again.

The aeration will help prevent algae bloom and reduce fish kill from lack of dissolved oxygen in the water.
