 A “Ceremony of Celebration and Handover ”   Friday November 17th 10.30 am at Ban SiamYen Municipal School
 Clean Drinking: Water and Sanitation  3,500  students have fresh water daily
  This RCoPB project caters for school within walking distance from Days Inn and lies within the responsibility of the Patong Council Phuket Thailand. The town which was severely affected by the tsunami has grown rapidly to cater for the tourism but the infrastructure has not been able to respond. Water and Waste management is the most important issue. The local river which discharges into the sea is full of toxins. The town supply is of poor quality and drinking water as such has to be purchased in 1 gallon plastic jars. The provision of the pure drinking water system is part of a more comprehensive plan on community health and well being. 
 
This project recognizes that water and sanitation is fundamental to community health through the provision of safe affordable water for personal and domestic use. There is a local concern that local toxins (including human waste) permeate the local water. The schools with poor sanitation and poor water supply are of high risk from infections and exposure to contaminants. This may well have a prejudicial impact on girls. 
 Student action  from 150  students of the schools  who have received  scholarships or water systems led by Honorary Member Jimmie and assisted by other Rotarians worked  together with the Prince of Songkla University Department of Environment and participated in a workshop which related to water quality and the Klong
It was two years ago that our Rotary club on Environment Day  June 9th 2015 made a statement which supported  the policy of an ISO standard being used to manage and monitor the beaches, establish a Patong Green Club , be involved in a street cleanliness strategy and monitor the discharge from the Klong into the Patong beach. Our club hosted the meeting at Holiday Inn  but long term action has been picked up by the Hotel's Association Our effort has been encouraging students to be involved and  giving regular talks to students at the PSU
Student action  is our club focus on coastal sustainability.
