Workers's camp at Baan Jo waterworks

When was the workers's camp allowed to be set up at the Baan Jo water-treatment plant? They are housed inside the restricted area by the water's edge and the sheets of corrugated iron used for the accommodation is bright and new.

Are they now going to contaminate this water as their own private swimming pool and toilet facility? Can the authorities not clear them out? Disgraceful.

Thank you very much for your concern. I do not know of the camp you are talking about, but I will have our staffers search the area and see what can be done.

There is the possibility that the camp is on private land, which we cannot do anything about.

However, it is illegal for people to interfere with public water supply, and it is illegal to swim or even fish in the reservoir.
