Naturally carbonated water, from underground sources in Huay Krajao district of Thailand’s Kanchanaburi, will be distributed to people in the district, on a trial basis, free of charge on Wednesday by Department of Groundwater Resources.
Officials from the department were busily installing water filter systems today, near the carbonated water well, so they will be ready for tomorrow, when the department’s director-general, Mr. Sakda Wichiensilpa will inspect the site and distribute the bottled sparkling water to the public.
Samples taken from the underground well have been tested and the water was found to contain several minerals, none of which are toxic. The water must, however, be filtered before consumption.
It is expected that a large crowd will show up tomorrow to get bottles of the free carbonated water.
