JOHOR BARU: Some 50,000 residents in Mersing can heave a sigh of relief as the six-month scheduled water supply exercise ends today following an improvement in the Congok dam’s water level.

State Public Works, Rural and Regional Development Committee chairman Datuk Hasni Mohammad said water rationing has come to an end with rainfall and effective measures taken to solve the water issue.

In a statement, he said although the water level at the dam was still below the critical level, Saj Holdings Sdn Bhd was confident that the Tenglu water treatment plant could help ensure regular water supply.

Hasni added that the RM3.56mil raw water transmission project from the Nitar water treatment plant, which is expected to be completed by the end of November, would also relieve the problem at Mersing.

Saj and the Johor Water Regulatory Board had studied the rainfall pattern in the area, he added.

However, Hasni said water rationing might resume if the dry spell returns.
