KULAIJAYA: Johor aims to increase water levels in its 15 dams by 10% to 30% by carrying out 10 days of cloud seeding operations.

Johor Water Regulatory Body (Bakaj) director Abdul Rashid A. Rahman said that the cloud seeding, which started on Tuesday, was to normalise three dams that were at critical levels.

He said that the cloud seeding, now in its third day of operations, had been successful with rain falling for about 30 minutes after each process was carried out.

"Each cloud seeding process takes about three hours. The plane would circle the targeted areas looking for suitable clouds to light up flares," he said during a press conference at Senai here Thursday.
