This is because a large community of Tsunami victims is in wetland areas, in proximity to Ta Kua Pa Municipality Waste Disposal. It is likely that the community may be affected by various forms of pollutions including waste water, garbage, air pollution, as well as contamination of toxic waste in ground water if proper management is not put in place. The community has 500 households, with more than 1,500 residents. The areas normally receive about 10 tonnes of garbage per day, 5 from Ta Kua Pa Municipality, 4 from Bang Nai Si Tambon Administrative Organisation, and 1 from Pru Tiaw village. Without proper management of the waste, environmental problems may become more severe than expected. 

In addition, impacts of the waste on the environment in the future have been predicted, and recommendations on mitigation measures have been proposed in order to help deal with them.
