MIRI: Spaoh district in southern Sarawak has been hit by drought, and the Sarawak Fire and Rescue Department has deployed emergency supplies of treated water following appeals for help from residents.

Sarawak Bomba, in its latest updates Thursday (April 4), said some 22,000 litres of treated water have been sent via a Bomba tanker.

“This is the second day that Spaoh has been without water.

“Bomba carried out an act of community service and helped deliver the water to the residents,” it said.

The water was sourced from the district water-treatment plant.

Spaoh is located about 250km from Kuching.

Bomba Sarawak is also currently dealing with forest fires in many parts of the state.
