The Office of the National Water and Flood Management Policy is preparing to submit the controversial 350-billion-baht water management project to the National Council for Peace and Order (NCPO) for consideration amid strong protests by activists who want it scrapped. 

Apichart Anukul-ampai, head of an academic and analytical sub-panel under the Water and Flood Management Committee (WFMC), said the flood management policy office is ready to provide all information about the scheme to the NCPO.

The coup-making body will have the final say on whether the project will proceed.
