JKR working to solve water disruption issues

|     Rokiah Mahmud     |

THE Public Works Department (JKR) apologised for the water disruptions being experienced by residents living in Kampong Perumahan Meragang, Kampong Perpindahan Lambak Kanan and the surrounding areas.

The department said they were due to damages at Stage 4 and Stage 5 of the Bukit Barun Water Treatment Plant. They have caused insufficient supply of clean water to the said areas.

Water supply to the main reservoir in the Terunjing link to the end of Meragang reservoir as well as Kampong Perpindahan Lambak Kanan reservoir have experienced low water pressure.

The process in stabilising the water level will take some time, especially for the last reservoir in Kampong Perpindahan Lambak Kanan and Meragang.

JKR assured the public that it is taking all steps to address the issue.

The department is prioritising the supply of blue water tanks and tankers to affected areas. It seeks the cooperation of the general public to exercise prudent water usage and to report to the Darussalam hotline 123 for any water supply problem.
