East Water increased the irrigation efficiency of the East by accelerating in developing the linking system of water database

East Water accelerated in developing the water database linking system to enhance the efficiency of irrigation in the East. East Water Resources Development and Management Public Company Limited or East Water announced the progress of the water management system development project to enhance its management capacity focusing on the linkage of all water resources in the East. Recently, the survey results of canals and irrigation buildings together with the irrigation buildings of the right side and the left side of the main canal of Rayong Irrigation Project for totaling 235 canals were conducted. This was divided into 123 irrigation projects in Ban Khai District and 112 Expanded Ban Khai irrigation projects as a guideline for increasing the efficiency of irrigation system in the area in order to check the damage of canals and irrigation buildings. The area was surveyed by the cooperation of Rayong Irrigation Project and Kasetsart University to bring the information from the cause survey and suggest improvements to enhance the efficiency of water delivery of Rayong Irrigation Project.

This water management project was the collaboration of public and private agencies between East Water and Royal Irrigation Department to improve irrigation efficiency. This could help the cost water in Dok Krai Reservoir, Nong Pla Lai Reservoir, and Khlong Yai Reservoir to remain in more volume. This could also reduce the power of water diversion from remote sources and improve the quality of life of farmers as well as enhancing GDP of the country. When this project had been implemented, it would be really beneficial to all water users.
