SEREMBAN: The National Water Services Commission (SPAN) has confirmed that there is no water supply crisis in Negri Sembilan currently, said Syarikat Air Negri Sembilan Sdn Bhd (SAINS) Corporate Services Division head Norzita Iamail.
She said the water supply situation in Negri Sembilan was still under control.
"This was stated personally by SPAN chief executive officer Datuk Teo Yen Hua after a working visit to the headquarters of SAINS here on Friday. He was here to listen and to see personally the latest situation on water supply in Negri Sembilan," she said on Saturday.
She said the one-hour discussion between officers of SAINS and 10 officers from SPAN was followed up with visits to the Sungai Terip Dam, Ngoi-Ngoi water treatment plant, Triang Dam and the water intake at Petasih.
The Negri Sembilan state government opened a disaster operations room in Seremban since Sunday following the drying up of the source of raw water in Sungai Batang Benar, Pantai near here, due to the prolonged drought.
As a result there was water supply disruption in Seremban Barat particularly in Taman Nusari Bayu, Taman Nusari Aman, Taman Sendayan Indah, Taman Cederawasih, Mambau, Taman Kelab Tuanku and Bukit Sendayan.
Nevertheless, supply in the area was restored after SAINS activated its contingency plan by sending tanker lorries and stationing static water tanks in the affected housing estates and by channelling water from the Kuala Sawah treatment plant to Seremban.
Norzita said SAINS always sought and implemented alternatives to diversify water supply so that consumers could enjoy normal treated water supply.
She said SAINS encouraged consumers who needed help or wanted to lodge a report to contact toll free line 1-800-88-6982.
Meanwhile, in Temerloh, a RM52mil project to upgrade water supply for residents in the Jengka Felda and nearby areas, which was started last year, would be fully completed by the middle of this year.
