Creating Sustainable Future of Mae Kha Canal in Chiang Mai, Thailand (Sunantana Nuanla-or)

Having roles as a city guardian, cultural features, and irrigation system, Mae Kha Canal was one of the most important components of Chiang Mai water system. Unfortunately, the unregulated growth due to a rapid urbanization since 1985 has caused the canal to suffer with massive amounts of pollution. As a consequence, the city turns its back on the canal, and makes it a dumping site.
This project provides a comprehensive study and thoroughly analysis in historical, environmental, and planning aspects.
