Residents in the vicinity of Phra Tamnak Hill in Pattaya have expressed concerns over a persistent foul smell that has been lingering since January 2nd. It is suspected that the odorous emissions stem from a substantial buildup of waste within the drainage system, possibly originating from a nearby Indian restaurant that reportedly lacks proper grease traps or disposes of waste directly into the system.
Despite the residents’ proactive actions of reporting the issue to both the Pattaya Municipal Office and the Pattaya Environmental Office on two separate occasions, no noticeable steps have been taken yet to alleviate the situation. Regrettably, the restaurant in question has not addressed the problem by installing grease traps or altering their waste disposal practices, despite the repeated complaints.
The unpleasant smell emanating from the area is believed to be a result of wastewater with a high concentration of pollutants, significantly impacting the residents’ quality of life and diminishing the overall appeal of the neighborhood for visitors. Consequently, the affected residents are appealing to the authorities to step in and enforce environmental regulations, underscoring the importance of a clean and odor-free environment.
Given the gravity of the situation and the residents’ concerns, it is expected that the authorities will promptly intervene and implement measures to resolve the issue. These efforts will not only improve the immediate living conditions but also restore the area’s desirability.
