No need for Melaka to begin water rationing

MELAKA: There is adequate water supply despite the current dry spell and the state has no plans to impose rationing, says Melaka rural development, flood management and green technology committee chairman Datuk Seri Idris Haron.

He said there is enough water in the three dams in the state to last up to the end of May.

“The capacity at each dam is about 86%, ” he said yesterday.

The Meteorological Department has forecast rain along the coastal areas in the next few days, he said, and this might raise water levels at the Durian Tunggal Dam in Alor Gajah as well as the Jus and Asahan dams in Jasin.
