Why do Thailand rivers get so polluted?



  1. 0 Votes

    Industrial growth and vehicles contribute to high levels of pollution in Thailand. The country is also subject to drought, especially in the northeast region. 2002 statistics state that Thailand has the least amount of water per person than any other Asian country, and 1/3 of this water is unsafe for human consumption. Water pollution is most serious in the populous Central Region, with high levels of industrial and domestic wastewater. In 1997, industrial river pollution caused the deaths of hundreds of thousands of fish and other aquatic life in the Nam Phong River. Furthermore, as a result of mining industry in the Nakhon Si Thammarat province, large amounts of arsenic were found in the groundwater.
