JOHOR BARU: Despite rain over the past two days, the water level at eight dams in Johor is still insufficient for the state to call off a scheduled water rationing exercise in Kluang and other districts.
State water concessionaire SAJ Holdings (SAJ) corporate communications chief Jamaluddin Jamil said there was a “slight increase” in the water level at the dams but it was still insignificant.
In fact, he said, the water corporation extended the exercise to some parts of Mersing, Sedili in Kota Tinggi and Bukit Batu in Kulaijaya yesterday.
“If the rain continues in the next few days and the water level rises to normal, then it is possible that the rationing exercise will be called off soon.
“Water supply in Kluang is still scheduled on a two-days on two-days off basis, while other affected areas will receive water on alternate days,” he added.
Jamaluddin said the Sembrong Timur treatment plant in Kluang depended on the Sembrong Kiri river for raw water and not from the dams.
“We will continue monitoring the water level at the eight dams – in Lebam, Congok, Juaseh, Bekok, Labong, Gunung Pulai, Pontian Kechil and Upper Layang,” he said.
For complaints and enquiries, consumers can contact the SAJ Info Centre hotline at 1-800-88-7474 or SMS 019-772-7474.
