The Mayor of Hua Hin, Mr. Nopporn Wutthikul has proposed a 25-million Baht program to solve water shortages in the summer months to the Hua Hin Municipal Council. The proposal includes increasing of water production to 300 cubic metress per hour at Khao Lang Water Plant in Hua Na so that residents of Hua Na, NongKae and Saphan Khee Lek have sufficient water. The mayor also proposed construction of a water production plant in Bo Khaem, ChaAm to produce 500 cubic metres of water per hour.
The water will be used by people in Boh Fai, Samoh Phrong and on the eastern side of Phetchakasem Road. The proposal has been approved as water shortage is an urgent problem in summer. According to Mr. Nopporn, for the past 3 years, water from Pranburi has been used to produce water for consumption in Hua Hin.
The demand for water in the city is becoming higher every year due to the needs of hotels, guesthouses and other business here. The Mayor added that, besides water from Pranburi, the Municipality also used water from Kaeng Krachan. Municipal staff has now formulated a plan to solve this problem for the next 20 years.
