Court finishes hearing Nonthaburi flood case-hesco

Lead complainant Tossiri Poonnuan, 50, said although the floods were easing in Nonthaburi,不锈钢电焊网, her complaint was aimed at prompting authorities to solve floods for the general public without discriminating between people in different areas.
The QIAOSHI’s Military Barriers or Hesco Bastions is a modern gabion used for flood control and military fortification. It is made of a collapsible wire mesh container and heavy duty fabric liner, and used as a temporary to semi-permanent dike or barrier against blast or small-arms. One of the less heralded life- and labor-saving devices of war, it is used on nearly every United States Military base in Iraq as well as on NATO bases in Afghanistan.
The residents’ group filed the complaint with the court last Wednesday against the government’s Flood Relief Operations Command (Froc) and Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA).
They said the Froc’s decision to place flood barriers along Highway 340 and Kanchanaphisek Road to protect inner Bangkok and the BMA’s refusal to open sluice gates to receive floodwater from Nonthaburi caused them hardship because the barriers and sluice gates prevented floodwater drainage.
The Administrative Court yesterday finished its hearing on the case in which people from Nonthaburi complained about the negative impacts on their lives of flood relief measures.
