Army Set to Tackle Possible Flooding
« on: February 15, 2012, 01:02:52 PM »
BANGKOK: -- The Army started dredging canals today until and will continue until May 30 to prevent possible future flooding.

Deputy Army Spokesperson Colonel Sirijant Ngatong along with Deputy Internal Security Operations Command Spokesperson Colonel Winnathai Suwaree announced that Army Chief General Prayuth Chan-Ocha has ordered the military to support the government's water management measures by growing trees at river origins, building dams to slowdown the water, and protecting the forests.

In the meantime, the Army has been preparing engineering soldiers to develop water sources. Engineer Regiment 1, 2, and 3 were assigned to dredge canals in the previous flooded areas to discharge the water easily. All of the procedures will begin today and last until May 30.
