ISSP [2015] : Local Water Network Rectification in Krabi, Thailand

This project aided the Population and Community Development Association to address the water quality and quantity problems of two villages, Baan Tha Thong Lang and Baan Tha Lane in Krabi, Thailand. Our team observed the water systems, surveyed villagers, interviewed experts, and conducted water tests for non-drinking standards of the water supplied by both systems. Our results indicated that the water in one well of Baan Tha Thong  Lang  exhibits  high  levels  of  hardness  while  the  water  system  in  Baan Tha Lane  does  not  provide  enough  water  to  the  village.  We  recommended  that  if  the PDA  has  the  funding  to  install  a 170,000฿chemical  precipitation  system  in  Baan  Tha Thong  Lang  and  dig  a 1,125,000฿well  in  Baan  Tha  Lane,  it  will  greatly  improve  the quality of life for over 600 rural villagers.
