Canals Bangkok Klongs
Thailand: Bangkok's klongs (canals) are full of sewage, a Bangkok city official reportedly admitted .
Khun Pornpot Kannasoot, director of the BMA, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration's water quality management said that most of the khlongs are used widely for transport and even swimming and all of them were seriously polluted.
Tests showed the Thai klongs, contained high levels of total coliforms, a bacteria that indicates the water is contaminated. Ideally, no total coliforms should be present in natural waterways, Khun Pornpot said. The major source of total coliforms is sewage and especially excrement.
Khun Pornpot said many of Thailand's households released excrement directly into the Bangkok khlongs.
Thailand popstar Apichet Kittikorncharoen, a singer with boy band D2B and better known by his nickname "Big", has reportedly been given a 50-50 chance of surviving the brain infection he contracted when his car crashed into a water-filled ditch in Bangkok on July 22.
