High river level causes water discolouration

Rokiah Mahmud

Homes in certain parts of Seria, the whole of Mukim Kuala Belait and Mukim Kuala Balai will experience water discolouration due to reparation works and changing of media filter for tankers 5 and 7 at the Seri Water Treatment.

The discolouration is the result of high water level at Badas River.

The Public Works Department (JKR) informed that reparation work on the affected tanks will take approximately three months.

JKR ensured that all measures are being taken to address the discolouration issue immediately, and that the water quality is in accordance with World Health Organization (WHO) Guidelines standards.

The public is advised to practise water usage prudence and contact Darussalam line 123 for water tankers or to lodge a complaint. They can also clean their water tank to minimise water discolouration issues.
