Sika Thailand cooperate with communities and the Royal Forest Department to build a check dams have restored lushness to Nang Yang Suea and put an end to aridity and wildfires.
Sika Thailand realizes in accordance with the water conservation and management initiatives of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej. Therefore, we have organized “Building Moisture Retention Dam (Check Dam) Project” at Nong Yang Suea is a community in Muak-Lek district,Saraburi province. They are affected of droughts, recurring wildfires and water scarcity and when it rains, the soil will be washed down the slope and eroded. It can affect communities and environment. So we cooperate with communities and the Royal Forest Department to build a check dams have restored lushness to Nang Yang Suea and put an end to aridity and wildfires.
Check Dams can maintain moisture for the environment, reduce the velocity of water flow and prevent silt from flowing downstream, maximizing the use of rainfall and replenishes groundwater, giving farmers immediate relief.
This project uses Sika concrete cube 17.60 tons, used for testing process at factory, instead of stone to block the waterway and retains sediment by lining up into a wall. In which the cement is used as a material for making weir to help restore nature and It is also to use of waste materials to the most benefit as well.
