Idris Haron: No water rationing in Melaka despite dry spell

MELAKA: There will not be water rationing in the state despite the current dry spell, says Datuk Seri Idris Haron.

The state Rural Development, Flood Management and Green Technology Committee chairman said water levels at the three dams remain at comfortable levels and that the supply could last until the end of May.

“The output of water is manageable and the capacities at each of the dams are about 86%, ” he said on Monday (Feb 22).

Idris said the Meteorological Department also forecasted rainfall along the coastal areas in the next few days.

He said with the downpour, it could help to raise the water levels at Durian Tunggal Dam in Alor Gajah, Jus and Asahan Dams in Jasin.

Last year, Melaka saw the worst water rationing exercise, affecting many households and industrial areas.

The exercise that was carried out in stages lasted for almost three months from Jan 29 to April.
