Bangkok to be saved from flood by the Monkey Cheek project

BANGKOK, 8 September 2011 (NNT) – HM the King’s initiative “Monkey Cheek project” will be adopted to contain 6 million cubic meters of water to prevent the west side of Bangkok from flooding.

Director of the BMA’s Department of Drainage and Sewerage Sanya Sheenimit said 25 water stations were expected to be in full operation to prevent inland flooding in the west of the city which covers 76 square kilometers.

Water stations including Khlong Khun Ratchaphinitchai, Khlong Luk Wua and Khlong Choeng Ta Phae will only release the water slowly so it does not flood homes and communities. Residents of Bang Khu Thian and the adjacent districts will benefit from the Monkey Cheek project.
