Inadequate drainage, zoning, laws and engineering in Isaan, Thailand

As far as I have been able to determine no engineering of any sort goes on in the towns and cities of Thailand.
A new housing estate and there are many has a major impact on the area it is built in and beyond.. Cover a 100x500 meter area with lanes and houses and every 1cm of rain produces an extra 500 liters of runoff. Where does it goe and how does it get there. No one seems to know or care, but flooding gets worse and worse and at the end of the day nothing gets done to rectify the problem.
