The upper stretch of the Tapi River in Nakhon Si Thammarat province has been judged as having the cleanest water in Thailand in over five years, according to the Pollution Control Department.

Rangsan Pinthong, director of the Water Quality Management Bureau, said the upper portion of the Tapi met criteria for the best water quality in the country, according to the latest survey between July and September, particularly as it has a small number of microorganisms and a low amount of chemicals.
