EIT urges water plan review

- +

The Engineering Institute of Thailand (EIT) is calling on the government to rethink its 350-billion-baht water management scheme, saying an overhaul is needed and the project management team must be changed. 

The EIT was concerned the water management scheme would meet the same fate as the Royal Thai Police Office's troubled project of constructing 396 police stations nationwide, Suwat Chaopreecha, president of the institute, said. He was speaking at a seminar on the water management scheme organised yesterday by the EIT.

"We're concerned the scheme won't finish and that will inevitably shatter public confidence in the government's 2-trillion-baht infrastructure development project," he said. The government should suspend the scheme and replace its management with a new one, he said.
