ISKANDAR PUTERI: Plans are already underway to build a new water treatment plant, the Layang 2, to increase water supply to the southern parts of Johor.
Johor International Trade, Investment and Utilities Committee chairman Jimmy Puah Wee Tse said the project was at the final stage of obtaining approval from the relevant authorities.
"The state government will provide the site for the plant," he told reporters during the Zinc Protects Steel From Corrosion seminar organised by Galvanizers Association of Malaysia and International Zinc Association.
Puah said the Layang 2 plant would be located just a few kilometres away from the existing Layang 1 water treatment plant at the Upper Sungai Layang.
"Both water plants would have a combined capacity to produce 320 million litres of treated water daily for the southern parts of Johor," he said.Puah said at present water treatment plants located in southern Johor supplied about 600 million litres of treated water daily for domestic and industrial users.
