The Public Works Department (JKR) at the Ministry of Development issued a statement about water supply disruption resulting in low water pressure in Kampong Sungai Teraban, Belait District.

The situation is due to the lack of clean water at the Seria Water Treatment Plant Clean Water Storage Tank because of technical problems forcing water pumps to be switched off to prevent damage to old pumps.

The department is addressing the issue by adding clean water to the tank.

JKR advised the public to boil water before using it for cooking or drinking, and urged water conservation. Residents can contact Darussalam line 123 for clean water supply through tankers.
