Penangites told to brace for 96-hour water cut from Jan 10


GEORGE TOWN: Penangites have been cautioned that there will be a 96-hour water supply disruption in the state from Jan 10 to 14.

Many areas will have no water supply while some will have low water pressure, according to the Penang Water Supply Corporation (PBAPP).

In a statement, PBAPP said it will be carrying out valve replacement works at the Sungai Dua water treatment plant and related repairs at several other locations along the main pipeline.

"We urge consumers to make preparations by storing enough water to face this supply disruption.

"This is to minimise inconvenience during the disruption.

"We will make notifications about assistance and other support from time to time," it said on Facebook on Wednesday (Dec 6), with an accompanying graphic showing the areas involved.

The graphic marks areas without water supply in pink for both the island and mainland, while areas highlighted in yellow are expected to have low pressure.

PBAPP serves 676,857 consumers in Penang, and nearly 70% of them depend on treated water from the Sungai Dua treatment plant.
