His Majesty has modelled the technique for water detention on the
way monkeys eat. His Majesty has asked the Royal Irrigation Department
to construct large water detention reservoirs in a ten square kilometre
area near the coast, in order to store water from natural water courses
and newly-dug canals. New water gates are also to be constructed to release
water into the sea during low-tides, while the gates will be closed during
high-tides to prevent seas water from flooding the reservoirs and the area.
The full implementation of the Kaem Ling Project needs careful study
and planning which takes time, therefore this cannot be achieved in the
preliminary stage. However, certain stages of the project can be carried
out to alleviate flood problems in the short run.
