Abstract

The water sources of Thailand's Suan Phung Nature Park may pose a health risk to locals. The goal of this project was to address threats to the water quality in the Huay Naam Sai watershed and provide recommendations for sustainable management. This was accomplished by testing fourteen locations for the types and levels of contaminants present and then assessing the water contamination and consumption habits of locals. Acceptable water quality was found for the parameters tested but variations in data corresponding to human impact indicate threats to the future quality of water.
