The director-general of the Department of Ground Water Resources on Tuesday denied alleged corruption in a project to shut down several artesian wells in Rayong province.
Supoj Jermsawasdipong, the director-general of the department, responded to a report from the Public Sector Anti-Corruption Commission (PACC) that eight artesian wells at eight schools in Rayong had not been filled in although his department had drawn funds for the task.
