Korat now running out of WATER and over 300 households in three villages have been running dry for over a week, according to a local media report.

The shortage began on April 12 when water pipes from a local plant of the Provincial Waterworks Authority ran dried.

Affected by the water shortage are about 300 households in three villages – Ban Phoek, Ban Mai Nong Bua and Ban Non Tako – in tambon Lum Khao of Non Sung district.

Turian Kangklang, 55, the owner of a resort at Ban Phoek, said she has to hire a truck to buy water for 200-300 baht per day from elsewhere to fill up the tank of her resort to supply water for her clients.

The shortage has also forced her to close a shop providing coin-operated washing machines, Mrs Turin said.
