The Sembrong dam in Kluang

JOHOR BARU: A month-long scheduled water rationing has started for almost 100,000 residents in Kluang after a dry spell in the state caused the Sungai Sembrong Kiri level to drop to only 0.5m.

The situation resulted in the water treatment plant operating at only two-thirds its capacity, forcing residents to go without water for 36 hours before the taps came on again for another 36 hours.
