THE Public Works Department (JKR) has apologised for the incovenience caused to the public following a disruption to the water supply in some of the areas in the Belait District starting at around 10am yesterday.
According to Imah Farizah binti Haji Anuar, the Acting Executive Waterworks Engineer, the interruption was due to an electric disruption at the Badas Raw Water Intake Power Station which supplies power to water treatment plants in Seria and Agis-Agis in Sungai Liang.
The JKR stated that an explosion occurred at the vacuum circuit breaker that led to the electric supply being cut off.
“The situation is back to normal and we have started pumping water into the tanks and the water supply will be fully restored tomorrow (Friday) morning.” The JKR has advised affected members of the public to call Water Tank Lorry Services at 3334206 or hotline 123 for assistance.
