Desalination plant gets govt go-ahead – Bangkok

A seawater desalination project is being developed to provide a source of water for the Eastern Economic Corridor (EEC), said government spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri yesterday.

Securing water supplies was one of the issues raised at a meeting which was chaired by Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha to follow up on progress in the EEC policy yesterday.

A total of 38 water supply-related projects worth 52.8 billion baht were devised in a bid to feed the corridor. Of them, nine projects are complete.
