Is water saved up for Songkran?

In March this year, the area opposite Villa 5 on Chao Fa West Road had no water for three days. Was the water being saved for the upcoming Songkran? If that wasn’t the reason, how is it possible to lose the water supply for that long, and what does the government intend to do to solve the problem?

We are aware of how much water is needed in Phuket and release all the water that we are able to produce.

We never hold back necessary water for any reason.

Generally, Phuket has more than enough water. However, there are cases where we have to fix pipes, which does cause problems. We do try to have the work completed within a day, so we can get the supply running again.

If you have any urgent water issues, I suggest calling my mobile phone instead of my office. That way I can contact my workers instantly regarding the issue.

I am available 24 hours a day, and you are welcome to call my private number on 087-0120295.
