Energy Minister Pichai Naripthaphan said that the flooding situation in Bangkok is likely to persist for one month, while the water level in the city is expected to begin to subside after the middle of November.
Minister Pichai said that various affected factories would resume their operations within the next three to four months.

The Government has rehabilitation plans to bring quick recovery to industrial estates whose operations and facilities have been damaged by the flooding. If the factories needed to replace their devices and equipment, they would be encouraged to turn to energy-saving ones.

He said that 140 water pumps would be used to drain water out from the Saha Rattana Nakorn Industrial Estate and the Rojana Industrial Park in Ayutthaya province on November 10. Water drainage in other industrial estates would also be accelerated. As for the affected people, he said, the Government has prepared a comprehensive rehabilitation plan to assist them.

Regarding flood control in Bangkok, the Flood Relief Operations Center revealed that the six-kilometer-long barrier, or the “Big Bag” floodwall, which had been set up recently, would help slow down the flow of water from the north of Bangkok to a certain extent. This would also enable the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration to drain water more efficiently. The setting up of the Big Bag floodwall is also being considered in Bang Kruai to slow down the water flow in the western side of Bangkok.
