The environmental health impact assessment for the Mae Wong Dam is too flawed for the project to get approved, environmentalists told an academic forum yesterday.
Somruthai Tasaduak, of the Water Resource Engineering Department at Kasetsart University, said the EHIA clearly showed key information about the project was missing.
"There are no details on how to direct water to communities and how to ensure that the water volume will be adequate for those who live downstream," he said. Somruthai said information on construction was also missing.
