Do I need permission for drilling own well in Hua Hin

Post by Socrates » Sat Jul 29, 2017 10:35 pm

Hello everybody,

We have a plot in Laguna Village, Soi 102. There is already water supply from the city. Nevertheless, we are considering drilling our own well.

Does anyone know if you need an authorization?

Thank you for answering

Yes you do. Should be arranged by the drilling contractor, and not always permitted.

40,000 Baht fine if you drill a borehole without a permit.

Yes, you do. My brother-in-law needed to obtain a permit for it.

I have in the past been told that you only require a permit for a "deep" well, which is apparently any well deeper than 30 meters.

However, the answers you have received so far suggest that I may have received incorrect information.
