‘Johor’s dams are at a healthy level’

JOHOR BARU: The dams in Johor are at healthy levels despite the hot spell, says the state Water Regulatory Body (Bakaj).

Its director Natazha Hariss said the dams are at least 80% filled and the current hot weather has yet to have a significant impact on the water levels.

“We are lucky that in Johor, we are still getting rain periodically amidst the heat.

“Nevertheless, the public is advised to use water wisely and avoid wastage as we do not want to make the situation worse. Other states such as Penang and Kedah are already facing water disruptions.

“We hope to prolong our water supply and stretch it until September as that is when we move towards the monsoon season where higher rainfall is expected,” he told The Star.
