Water disruption and low water pressure will be experienced today from 9am to 3pm due to cleaning work on the water tank at Kampong Wasan 1, said the Public Works Department (JKR) of the Ministry of Development.

The affected areas are Kampong Wasan, Jalan Batang Perhentian, Kampong Junjongan, part of Kampong Lumapas, Kampong Limau Manis, Kampong Kuala Lurah, Limau Manis Police Station, IBTE Kampong Wasan, Kampong Batu Ampar, Pengkalan Batu, Kampong Parit, part of Kampong Masin and its surrounding area.

JKR will also be carrying out replacement work on a pipe leakage measuring eight inches at 9am today until completion, which will result in a reduction in the production of clean water to some areas in Mukim Lamunin.

Meanwhile, installation work of new valve will take place tomorrow from 10pm to 1am.

Several areas will be affected by water supply disruption and lower water pressure especially on higher grounds including Bandar Seri Begawan, Jalan Kota Batu to Kampong Sungai Belukut, Kampong Subok and its surrounding areas.

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

Application for tankers can be made through Darussalam line 123.

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