The Monitoring of Water Quality in Bangpakong River
Basin by Local Residents activity is created to encourage local community
participation in water quality monitoring process. The objectives of
this activity are three folds:
- To strengthen local community awareness and participation
for water quality monitoring;
- To expand water quality monitoring network upon Chacheangsao
province to Nakorn Nayok and Prachinburi;
- To establish a connection of the “Bangpakong River
Basin Protection Network”.
Pollution Control Department (PCD) and Thai Resources and Environmental
Management Institute (TREMI) organize the water pollution examination
training program for the local community. The training provides both
knowledge and practices in water quality monitoring. In addition, necessary
instruments for water quality monitoring are given to the participants.
Using an information technology approach to establish communication
path among the Bangpakong River Basin Protection Network, PCD and TWMI
set up a website.
Several activities will be conducted to launch awareness and promote
local involvement within the communities. An exhibition of water quality
results monitored by the communities will be held. Relevant information
for local communities will be provided. “Environment and river
festival” will be arranged, by cooperation of members of the network
in three provinces, Chacheangsao, Nakorn Nayok and Prachinburi.
