Thailand faces many challenges in the water and wastewater sector. Potable water accessibility is a critical issue in Thailand. Less than half of urban households have properly piped water source, while 62% of the rural population obtain untreated water from rivers, canals, ponds or sometimes through harvesting rainfall. Many of the country's river basins are highly polluted, due to weak law enforcement and poor monitoring systems. The country's wastewater treatment sector is also underdeveloped; its 100 wastewater treatment plants have the capacity to treat just 3.2 (Megameter) Mm3/day or 22.9% of total wastewater generated. Flooding is a long-standing issue in the country, given the lack of city planning or an efficient water-drainage system, while drought regularly wrecks havoc with its agriculture sector. Water management and storage are a high priority for the government, which is investing into new canal systems, dredging operations, pumping stations and retention walls.
