 * Kaem Ling Project :  is a flood control project based on a suggestion of the King Bhumibol Adulyadej. The concept is to provide a place to store water at various points used as temporary water storage reservoirs, which are filled with water when the rain is very heavy before releasing down to the public drainage.

 * Klang - Din Project  The Soil Pretend Project is based on a suggestion of the King Bhumibol Adulyadej. It is about solving the acid or acid soil by flooding water in the ground until a chemical reaction to acid soils until the end. Then drain and neutralize the soil with lime. Then the soil condition is good enough to be used for cultivation.

  This is just part of the projects due to the King Bhumibol Adulyadej initiative only. There are also various Royal projects which many of them help to generate income and create jobs for local people. These also help to preserve forests, watersheds and abundance of resources in Thailand. Then you know why all Thai people are so loyal and love His Majesty so much :-)
