CHAI NAT -- The volume of water from the North has continued to decrease and, as a result, the water level below the Chao Phraya Dam in Chai Nat is expected to stabilise, a Royal Irrigation Department official said on Sunday.

Suchart Charoensri, director of the 12th irrigation office in Chai Nat, said on Sunday morning that water was flowing past the water-measuring station in front of Chiraprawat military camp in Nakhon Sawan at the rate of 1,611 cubic metres per second.

The water on the upper part of the Chao Phraya Dam in tambon Bang Luang of Chai Nat's Sappaya district was 15.10 metres above mean sea level (MSL) and the dam was releasing water at the rate of 1,234 cubic metres per second.
