The Ministry of Development (MoD) announced the installation of new valves measuring 250mm will be carried out tomorrow at 10pm until 2am the next day.

The flow of clean water may be reduced compared to the normal volume while several areas will receive water supply disruptions and low water pressure especially in high altitudes.

The affected areas are the surroundings of Simpang 281 and Simpang 34 in Jalan Penghubung Berakas, Kampong Lambak and Simpang 257 in Jalan Utama Berakas in  Kampong Lambak.

The Public Works Department assured the public that steps have been taken to address the low water pressure and efforts made to complete the installation works as soon as possible.

The department also seeks public cooperation in conserving water, adding that the public can contact the Darussalam line 123 for clean water supply through a tanker or complaints regarding clean water supply. The use of a tanker is limited.
