Video reveals the cause of Pattaya’s filthy beach

PATTAYA: -- An alarming video has revealed what has caused disgusting waste water to pollute Pattaya beach.

 

Footage of black water, sludge and stinking rubbish polluting the beach was first reported by Sophon Cable TV on Thursday, leading to the beach being dubbed an ‘environmental disaster zone’.

 

Now a video shared on Facebook has revealed the reason why the wastewater and other disgusting matter has been washed up on the beach.

 

A video posted to the Facebook page True Pattaya apparently showed city sewers running directly into the sea.

 

A caption which accompanied the footage read:

 

“Pattaya dirty secret. The sewers are going right into the water. This includes shit, vomit, chemical waste, food waste, and everything else”.

 

The post claimed that three pipes at various points along the beach road all run into the sea.

 

“There are 3 tubes like this. One at North Beach road at the top, this one close to soi 6 and another at the entrance of Walking Street. In Jomtien Beach it is exactly the same. Another exit is close to Cozy Beach at Pratukmak. Their exit is a about 300 meters offshore where people cannot see”, the post read.

Cannot someone do some water sampling to see how polluted it really is?

these published  across the world would make great reading for any traveller.

now I know why they want more Chinese tourists 😎

This drainage is all by design : Photo is the 2 m diameter drain pipe ( soi 6) that was installed  in the major flooding  prevention  drain project few years ago.

The two other locations at North and South end .??

Edit : Re ID 7   And those large pipes are not operating as evidenced by the portable pumps at Soi 6 and South end. And the North end is a chaotic mess.

After seeing these disgusting beaches I feel that something needs to be done.

It's no use just posting our opinions here on TV

 

The Thais need some help to see the serious problems and to understand  the impact of these problems on their country..

I think it's a matter of educating everyone to feel the same disgust that we expats feel and let them know it doesn't have to be like this.

 

I think the expat population of Thailand should get together with the help of TV to make a  signed petition  to the government stating our concerns that not enough is being done to protect the environment and our fear that Thailand's beautiful landscape is rapidly being destroyed.

The media need to get involved as well since they have a huge influence on what Thais think.

 

There could be parallel petitions complaining about the other major issues such as safety and education.

 

I don't know how many expats there are in Thailand but surely we have enough voices to make a difference.

 

I wonder if a few local campaigns can be conducted to raise money to clean up beaches by purchasing tractors and rakes to clean the sand of debri every day..

Of course the authorities need to stop raw sewerage and rubbish from getting into the sea by whatever means possible.

Pattaya is a great place , but has major problems with pollution. A lot of bins on beach road now , but none anywhere else . Second road and all the soi's up to BK could e flooded with bins and Emptied regularly. Also all the small street vendors tipping oil and food scraps down the drains . We have to start somewhere. Locals and tourists alike just through all there rubbish on the ground , as there re no bins .

I'm sure there is sufficient retiree expertise in country to assist in this matter.
