Korat’s 5 major dams releasing water for farms

All five main reservoirs in Nakhon Ratchasima have begun discharging water for home consumption and agricultural use for the first time since the sluicegates gates were ordered closed last month.

Chidchanok Somprasert, director of Nakhon Ratchasima’s Regional Irrigation Office 8, said on Wednesday the five dam reservoirs were now at an average 47% of capacity following recent steady rain.

Thaiga 47% - last time you noted water levels at 38% if I recall. The farmers will be happy at getting some water but Thailand needs a lotta rain next year !

Just 38% at the end of the rainy season - that's serious.
But we don't want a prolific year of rain next year with the accompanying floods either.
A major struggle for Thailand either way ....
