Hotels on drought alert

A water shortage due to drought in the tourist areas of Phuket, Thailand, is starting to affect the resort business.

Many hotels are attempting to shore up their local water reserves by purchasing large amounts of bottled water and running water saving campaigns to try and lower their usage. A comparison between an average person and a hotel guest reveals that the former uses about 180 liters a day, while a resort guest, up to 350 liters.

Members of the Thai Hotel Association stress that the hotels should have plenty of water through June 2016, mentioning that the hotels will most likely end up contracting with outside suppliers to make up for the shortfall. Government sources stress that their projections indicate there will be no shortfall, and that local reserves will be enough to last the entire region through July.
