When scanning the papers last week, BP was surprised to learn that two of Thailand’s major dams, Bhumibol Dam and Sirikit Dam, were releasing water after being 97% and 99% full respectively. The Bangkok Post on October 6: Increased water discharges from the Bhumibol Dam in Tak have threatened to add flood woes to provinces downstream, including Ayutthaya where a large number of industrial factories have been inundated since Tuesday. … The discharge rate at the Bhumibol Dam in Tak province has risen from 6 0 million cubic metres to 100 million cu m of water per day . The flow runs at about 1,200 cu m per second. The increasing discharge is meant to save the dam. The extra volume of water has worsened the flood situation downstream.
