The Public Works Department of the Ministry of Development informed the public that water disruption and low water pressure will occur today from 10pm until 3am due to extension works of replacing the old water pipe to a new 300mm pipe.

The affected areas are Kampong Mentiri, Kampong Sungai Belukut, Kampong Sungai Buloh, Kampong Pelambayan and surrounding places.

Meanwhile, work to upgrade the Bukit Barun Water Treatment Plant resumes today at 9pm. It will take a maximum of six hours and will result in a reduction in the production of clean water.

Several areas will be affected by water supply disruption and low water pressure especially for high areas including part of RPN Kampong Lambak Kanan; part of Kampong Tanah Jambu, Kampong Meragang and its surrounding areas.

The department will continue to work to restore normal supply of water and will send blue tanks to affected areas.

Application for supply of tankers can be made through Darussalam hotline 123 or 8333123.

The public is reminded to take steps to conserve water until the water supply recovers as usual as tank service is limited.
