BANGKOK, Sept 20 – The Industrial Estate Authority of Thailand (IEAT) has set up a centre to monitor flood water levels in order to provide a rapid response if the water level turns critical for flooding.

IEAT Governor Veerapong Chaiperm said the flood monitoring centre is located at the agency’s headquarters in Bangkok and the system is linked with all industrial estates.

The centre will keep a close watch on the level of water in Chao Phraya River, said the governor. It will alert all flood risk-prone areas within 24 hours if the flow of water increases from 1,700 cubic metres per second (mps) to 2,500 mps, which is considered the “critical” point although the estate will not yet be flooded.

Mr Veerapong said the Saha Rattana Nakorn Industrial Estate located furthest upsteam in the Chao Phraya Basin will be the first hit if there is flooding. He said construction of earthen dykes is 35 per cent complete. He pledged that the dyke building will be complete within this month although the work has been delayed much more than other industrial estates.

‘Big bag’ barriers have been prepared in case of any emergency, the IEAT governor said.

Other industrial estates in Ayutthaya and Pathum Thani provinces, Mr Veerapong noted, have had existing earthen dykes elevated for another half metre, with the work 95 per cent complete. He said it would be done by September 30. (MCOT online news)
