Posted 14 Jul. 2017 at 08:51 (viewed 11858 times)

Saipirun Noisiri Inspector of the Ministry of the Interior and pitcher Panapong Inspector of the Department of Public Works and Town & Country Planning met with the municipality of Koh Tao to discuss the problem of disposal of waste and waste water on the island.

Koh Tao generates around 3-4 tons of garbage a day to 1 million visitors a year. The incinerator of Koh Tao is broken for 3 years. The option to take 100THB by visitor to manage the problem has been studied, but there are legal issues.

A budget of 81 million baht was allocated to Koh Tao to manage the problem. The contract should be allocated this month next to a service provider who will take the waste on the continent to Surat Thani. This project was initially delayed due to residents of Surat Thani, expressing concern about the environmental impact at home. The Government has been able to reassure that there are treatment centers underutilized to Surat Thani.

Pitcher Panapong has indicated that this aid of 81 million is a one time offer, because subsequently, Koh Tao is to find a solution in the long term to manage its waste. Several solutions have been discussed as the implementation of selective sorting and also a new incinerator.

Koh Tao must stop using plastic bags said Krerkkrai Songthani, Chief Officer of the district of Koh Phangan. Koh Tao has already managed to banish the polystyrene for more than 3 years in accordance with local businesses.

For wastewater project is to remove the pipes draining wastewater directly into the ocean and build a wastewater treatment system.

He talked about the large number of mooring lines that were installed and helped a lot to preserve the coral reef.

It has also been discussed security. There are now 45 officers of fonts on Koh Tao. There are already many urban cameras on Koh Tao. 37 new cameras will be installed this year and 15 others of the tourist Police.
