Extreme drought during dry season
Untreated domestic sewage,
industrial wastewater & solid hazardous wastes have increased in the surface water bodies. Meteorology Air emissions of PM10 from diesel engines of buses and trucks
Dust problem near the roads identified as public health risk (higher than the acceptable standard)
The factories they work in expose dark smoke into the air, which causes pollution Bioecology Dump trash

Area: More than 2,300 sq km (900 sq mi)

Nicknames: Venice of Asia, City of Angels, Divine City Bangkok was known to have many names throughout history
Bang in Thai is known as "a village situated on a stream"
The name may have been derived from Bang Ko, Ko means "island"
OR It may have come from the plant Makok (Spondias pinnata, a plant bearing olive-like fruit)
King Rama I established his new capital on the river's eastern bank, he named it Krung Rattanakosin In Ayothaya and the city and the Siamese kingdom during the period became known as Rattanakosin.
Bangkok's current Thai name, Krung Thep Maha Nakhon, is a shortening of its full ceremonial name later given by Kings Rama III and Mongkut. Plant Makok (Spondias Pinnata) Solutions Bibliography (continued) http://palaeoblog.blogspot.com/2005/04/pleistocene-fossils-found-in-bangkok.html
