Water rationing
Description
Decided to cut the discharge of water from dams serving the Chao Phraya Basin from 28 million cubic meters to 18 million cubic meters per day, effective 16 July 2015. The move comes in light of the critically low supply of water in major reservoirs and is meant to preserve supplies for household consumption, until rainfall performance improves.
