Discoloured tap water: JKR addressing issue

The Public Works Department (JKR) yesterday issued an apology for the discoloured tap water being experienced in several areas, saying that it was caused by the poor and uneven quality of water derived from the river source. In its press statement, JKR said, “This issue calls for an additional treatment process, which could take a considerable amount of time, resulting in a limited production of clean water from the plant.” More details in Wednesday’s Borneo Bulletin.
