CityNews – September 24th, According to Regional Irrigation Office 1, the amount of water in Mae Kuang Udom Thara Dam, in Doi Saket, was at 29.776 million cubic metres or 11.32 per cent of the dam’s capacity. Authorities are deeply concerned that there may not be enough water saved up when the end of the rainy season arrives.
