KUCHING: The water supply in Sarawak will not be affected by the current dry spell, said Deputy Chief Minister Tan Sri Dr George Chan.
Daily, the city here uses about 300 million mega litres of water. Fortunately, we continue to record about 600 million mega litres of water flowing daily through the rivers, he told reporters after inspecting the temporary embankment at Sungai Sarawak Kiri in Batu Kitang to stop saline intrusion yesterday.
We want to stop further saline intrusion at the Batu Kitang water intake point because the electronics industries located at the Sama Jaya Free Industrial Zone need clean water, he said.
Dr Chan said the state was looking at cloud-seeding to induce rain but faced the problem of securing an aircraft to carry out the operation. Bernama
