KOH SAMUI, 5 May 2014 (NNT) –The Manager of the Koh Samui Waterworks Office is hastening to solve a problem with taps that have run dry in some areas, as a result of the recent rainfall deficit on the island.

After several months of low rainfall, available untreated water is reduced from 31,800 cubic meters a day to 21,600 cubic meters a day.

The Manager of the Koh Samui Waterworks Office said the solution to the long-term water demand on Koh Samui is the present construction by the Koh Samui Waterworks Authority of an untreated water pipe project which is expected to be completed in 2016.
