The Public Works Department (JKR) informed the public that a cable system repair work on the Bukit Barun Water Treatment Plant will affect water supply in nearby areas due to a reduction of clean water production and low water pressure.

Affected places are Kampong Batong, Masin, Perpindahan Lugu, Dadap, Jalan Pasir Berakas, RPN Lambak Kanan Jalan 11 Simpang 63, Jalan 77 Simpang 226, Jalan 10 Simpang 262 and surrounding areas.

However, the JKR will work to restore the water supply as soon as possible.

Meanwhile, replacement work on the valve inlet measuring 300mm in diameter at the Kapok Water Tank caused water disruption and low water pressure yesterday at 9pm, a release from JKR stated.

The statement said the affected places were the whole of Muara, Serasa, Kampong Kapok, Serai Pimping and surrounding areas.

JKR apologised for the inconvenience. The public can contact Darussalam hotline at 123 / Live Channel 123 and 8333123 for water tanker supply.

The public is advised to conserve water until the supply is restored.
