Yesterday I was heard of a video record of HMK's speech of the past, that he tried to have pursuaded the audience, Why the East Canals must remain active in connection with two rivers of Nakorn Nayok and Bangpakong. He emphasized using existing flood draining rivers first, then if somewhere is blocked, that must be dug.
This is so simple and so clear, even so easy to a 3 years'old toddler, but They dammed up rather.
Bangpakong river delta is not much different from Chao Praya. They encroached with gold clubs, condomina and industrial estates. All the roads are blocked along with factory and factory. Even river mouth was reclaimed and being used by wood-chipping mill and warehouses. If Bangpakong is inundated, whole Chachungsao city goes under water and 2-3 industrial estates go down.
Therefore, the eastern-saturated flood water lost where to go, so they instread built a large pump station at nearby Bang Bun seashore nevertheless the water is blocked by Sukhumvit highway and the Motorway.
One can test, with a A4 paper. Fold it in a triangle. the angled top is somewhere Nakorn Sawan, the broad down edge is Bangkok plain. Drip water little by little at the angled point and observe the behavior of water. Deeper upper, swallow down and speed varies : Bangkok, the building jungle is acting like a weir that water is lost of its speed and quantity. Instead the weir pushes away the water to lower corridor, AND NOW it takes East and WEst low land corridors as main travel route.
This is the nature of water and the reason why the East and West canals must have LONG AGO dug.
SUBMERGIBLE ROAD with FLY-OVER BRIDGE
Road design of Thailand must adopt this technology. They built up every low land - flood drainage low land with water barrier along road. Where water cross the the road, the road height must admit it to pass across. The low-lying road surface can be built strong concrete caisson and concrete surface. And over it, fly-over bridge must support the traffic.
GIANT TUNNEL with GIANT PUMP STATION at Prakanong river-shore.
I named this earlier as the Samak Sundaravet Pump Station. This drainage system turned the traditional Huay Kwang monkey cheek or another infamous name, "Rachada Pisek land" on the trouble, to GOLD LAND that everyone wanted a piece.
Still the drainage system remains dry, waiting the last castle war of the Citadel. However the water-head seems shy-away but instead release furious attack toward the weak links of Rama 2 road zone at West and Canal Sam Wa and Canal Hok Wa (1 wa is 2 meters, so samwa is 6 meters wide canal, Hokwa is 12meters wide canal. Depth is anyone's guess though).
Yesterday I saw BMA staff is removing the water weed stuck at the pump mouth, waiting the guest, the Suttisan-Jatujak waters. The water can only take 'road surface' or underground trench to infiltrate into Bangkok Citadel but now failing!.
SIT-DOWN WATER is trouble-some.
Water has filled up all the low-lying land holes. Unlike Isan soil condition where rain water quickly drain down through sandy soil to underground, 200 meters deep water table that is ended up to Tongle Sap lake of Cambodia, Bangkok pain, muddy surface soil of 50 meters CANNOT subside the water quickly enough.
Sit-down water remain at every houses, trench, dent, ditches even septic tank and AND QUICKLY SPOILED. Bad odor and contageous diseasal germs are quickly bleeding up!. Now garbage stakes started the work.
ALL CITIZEN must fold up sleeve.
Many Bangkok citizens are complaining garbage and blaming MR Sukhumvend of BMA. I advise him to KICK THE ASSES OF THEM HARD. Ask them come out and collect the garbage by themselves. Instead BMA distribute strong garbage sacks to them.
Now in Isan, I am fixing my house as an annual post-rain mending work but my villagers are idle and watching OBOTO's paid workers come and cut roadside weed, cleaning village ditches, mending village pump station. They just open 'Tamboon Tent' and loud speaker that forces village to pay 10 baht, 100baht for 'Poor Bangkok people" (hopefull it is not 'banana bitings'). My advise to my Uncle Ua in the past "Kick the ass" or "treat with blugeon") to educate lazy citizens.
BANGKOK PEOPLE MUST COME OUT AND COLLECT GARBAGE, Thai nationals or alien expatriate !
