Water meter thefts on the rise

PHUKET: The Provincial Waterworks Authority (PWA) is warning islanders of a growing rash of thefts of water meters across the province.

The thieves are most likely stealing the meters to sell them, or to exchange them with other meters and defraud the water authority, confirmed PWA Manager Pisak Chonlayut.

“We’ve been receiving an increasing number of reports of meters disappearing since last month,” Mr Pisak said.

Mr Pisak is encouraging local communities to keep an eye out on each others’ water meters in order to deter thefts.
