The government has completed Environmental Health Impact Assessments (EHIA) on four of five big dam projects planned in its 350-billion-baht water management scheme, according to the programme's director, Deputy Prime Minister Plodprasop Suraswadi. 

Mr Plodprasop said on Wednesday his team also has completed Health Impact Assessments (HIA) on 19 of the 20 proposed reservoirs on the master plan.

Plans for additional environmental assessments and for public hearings on all projects are under way, the minister said, but he would not give a timetable or an estimate of when they might be finished.
