These are supposed to be normal water drains connected to the city's storm drains, normally only waste water/storm water would run through these and out to sea, this type of drainage system usually needs no further processing before it goes out to sea,this is quite normal in most countries...

 

Problem is, there is so much illegal tie ins to these drains that there is all sorts of shit entering the system, quite literally, not to mention the amount of rubbish that goes down the drain along with cooking oil from all sorts of food vendors...

Absolutely spot on aye. 

They need to regulate 😁 stop all those buckets of oil from restaurants and houses being poured straight into the storm drains and review 😁 the sewage system!!!

Moti ....  I walk the beach walk every day, I rent a chair once in a while but NEVER go in the water. Not even to pee like the locals do. It amazes me the amount of so called "quality tourists" that actually come here to swim in this beach. Also not mentioned in the report.... When it rains, where does all that filthy drainage go to? 555 of course, the beach! 

I haven't been swimming there for at least 10 years.  Now, it's just one big cess-pit.  You won't see too many quality tourists there soo ; they'll get the hang of it eventually.

I have rented 2 houses in east Pattaya on separate occasions.  The first place had to have the septic tank pumped out when full, when we moved to the second place I asked the owner about pumping the tank out and he told me that I didn't have too as it was hooked up to the storm water drain.

my understanding is that most of the sewage does not go into the sea, its just when it floods that the sewage goes into the sea

 

My understanding is that this is incorrect. All toilet waste or black water goes in to holding tanks nearby the toilet and have holes in them to allow the broken down effluent to seep out in to the ground. Grey water does the same but to a different tank to allow the black water to break down.

 

I believe the water getting in to the ocean is 95 % stormwater from street drains. But then the food vendors, people working on cars, bikes etc tip all their unwanted waste in to that system.

 

I am not saying that no one has connected their toilet to the stormwater in the street but its unlikely. You need fall for this to work and in 99 % of the cases this would not be achievable. Without fall on the pipework your toilet would stay blocked.

 

The bad smell you get walking around streets in Thailand is from grease. Grease smells way worse than sewer.

 

There is no "sewerage system" as such that I know of anywhere in Thailand. Holding tanks need to be pumped. Septic tanks need to be pumped out when full of solids. If the septic tanks were ever connected to stormwater the area in the streets would stink.

 

I had the pleasure of digging up an old septic tank in Bangkok and replacing it with a bigger one. The ground around the tank was black from the broken down effluent seeping in to the ground around it. Not real stinky though as it was broken down.

I don't understand this country administration system, it has a revenue of over 1.7 trillion baht and still have silly problems in the 21st century.   Like dumping sewage into the sea and not covering accident health injuries for foreigners.

Disgusting!, Why are tourist allowed to take pictures and film on the beach. There is only a bit of trash on the beach, and I think it is moved around, from place to place to make it look dirty. Should be a law  against this kind of propaganda, and hurting Pattayas reputation.

I guess you work for the government?  I seems universal by comments from the Thai people that live there, that it is always like this.  Why do you care anyway?

Notwithstanding the infestation of whingers, cynics, bigots, and bashers on the forum, most of us residents are pretty happy living in our cesspool. There's actually lots more to do here than, you know, just drinkin' and enjoyin' soapies and threesomes all the time—which ain't too bad, come down to it. Relevant threads: When boredom starts to rule the day, I Love Pattaya, and Why live in Pattaya?.

 

But you're just trolling. Remember, for every Pattaya detractor, there are a thousand Brits living in council estates dreaming of how they might possibly live here permanently.

Saw quite a lot there this past high season, actually, if Thais and Russians count as better quality than, say, the average monger or yob--which I think they do. The party line, for bashing purposes, is that nobody swims and you can't swim, but in fact people do. What with social media nowadays, if it were THAT big a problem it'd be well recognized. I think many, except for our delicate, fussy posters here, have relatively low expectations for the price they're paying for a holiday in our beloved cesspool.

'Course what must be taken into consideration is what we might call the Pattaya Reality Distortion Field. Soon as Pattaya detects a puckered sphincter, it starts to treat the owner of said sphincter worse, figuring he just ain't gon' be no hansum man ever, to encourage him to bugger off. For example, if an old doomsayer, lost in contemplation of the Perpetual Pattaya Death Spiral, happens to walk on the beach to take a few incriminating photos, Pattaya will immediately send a turd floating by, quickly to be the subject of a indignant rant against The Great Satan: City Hall.

Many places in the world that shouldn't be a problem................... But over her you may get 'charged' with violating a 'computed Crimes Act' for publishing a water test result or changing their name from Sin-city to Sewer beach-city....... LOL........

I think It will be hard to improve the ocean water quality without regular testing of the water.
