Gates to open for one year

The Nation

December 12, 2001
The time period the Pak Mool Dam sluice gates will remain open has increased to one year.

The Cabinet yesterday agreed to the Prime Minister’s Office proposal of
increasing the period that the Pak Mool Dam sluice gates will remain
open to one year. Nahathai Tiewphaingam, deputy government spokesman,
said after the Cabinet meeting the extension would enable the
government’s working group to complete research into the impact. The
Cabinet in April ordered the Electricity Generation Authority of
Thailand to open all eight of the dam’s gates for four months from May
to September. However, villagers affected by the dam argued four months
would not give the government long enough to study the changes in the
river.
