In the past, the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) was the cause of environmental disasters in which SO2 emissions soared, causing environmental and physical health problems in the surrounding areas of Mae Moh. Because of such problems, communication of pollution levels became an important objective for EGAT. We accomplished our goals of identifying EGAT's environmental communication strategies and residents' information needs through interviews with EGAT employees and residents of three Mae Moh villages. We conclude the report with communication guidelines for EGAT addressing the main barriers to communication - information accessibility, information comprehensibility, and trust - as well as further recommendations for EGAT regarding increased interaction with villagers.
