    I didn't see any signs of dredging when I visited today. They should have dredged the reservoir and used the dirt for road building, instead of buying the dirt!

    Plenty of water for spraying the roads then. No need for conservation eh?

    So no rain this evening, and only a few drops left in our tank.


    The peace has just been disturbed outside by a loud diesel tanker from the water company delivering to a neighbour opposite us. The driver said that if we call the office, we will probably be able to arrange a delivery to us tomorrow.


    It will be like the relief of Mafeking… My whaaaat?

    For what it is worth, we achieved lift off tonight. After a very low pressure beginning we managed to raise the head to 2 meters sometime this morning. My main tank is requires a 2 meter head of water and the water supply is dribbling in to the tank. I guess its taken 5 hours to fill 300 litres but it is filling. It should be full come day break.

    You may want to rethink about that bore. Its so bad over in Buriram that are taking water from an old mine for domestic use. https://www.surinfarang.com/forum/threads/dept-warns-of-worst-drought-in-decade.26419/ Your extra tank is a good idea but it is not the long term solution. I have yet to be hooked up for domestic water in Kap Choeng as the water level in their main reservoir is too low. With it looking like only three months of rain maybe September, October & November there no way the reservoirs will recover for our areas.

    GL, I am sure you are right that the long term outlook is not looking very good. I have already spoken with the Boss and suggested a bore hole may be the way forward. The main pump that we already use is good for an 8 meter shallow bore, one of the Hitachi GX 250 series.

    I understand we could get the bore drilled for around 7,000 baht. It's an option still under discussion.

    The title of this thread has been changed to more accurately reflect the subject matter.

    If you put the bore in make sure you have an either or valve installed. As fore the bore I suggest you get cracking on that tomorrow as most of the outfits are working overtime.

    I went on a sight seeing tour this morning around the two reservoirs serving Surin City. I can confirm the situation is very dire. They are effectively dry with just an occasional pond or two where there are depressions.

    DSCN2059.JPG

    These photos show a couple of the depressions holding water. Look to the right of the second photo, that is dried lake bed. I doubt that the ponds represent 1% of the total area, 99% of the lakes are as dry as a bone. I agree with GL, can't see these lakes filling again this year without abnormal rainfall. In which case the water shortage will stretch for another year or more, mid 2020 at the earliest, always provided the rains come to this area. Remember, we get very little rain from October to end of March. The long, cool, dry season I so enjoy.

    Taps are dry, reservoirs hold virtually nothing, so where do the tankers, that offer to fill yout tanks -at a price -get their water from. A borehole possibly, but in distant days, the very reservoirs in Pattaya that could/would not supply the residents were selling water to the tankers!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
