Suggested mechanism for new water tariffs to be brought to Cabinet next week


KUALA LUMPUR: The suggested mechanism to set new water tariffs for Peninsular Malaysia and Labuan will be brought up at next week's Cabinet meeting, says Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change Minister Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad.

He added that existing water tariffs, including for domestic accounts, are expected to be reviewed when the mechanism is used in the future.

"This is an important thing for us to overcome the non-revenue water problems and boost our water infrastructure," he said when launching the Sustainability Achieved via Energy Efficiency (SAVE) 4.0 programme at the Natural Resources, Environment and Climate Change Ministry booth at the Madani Government One Year Anniversary Programme, in Bukit Jalil National Stadium here on Sunday (Dec 10).

Nik Nazmi had said during a question and answer session at the Dewan Rakyat on Nov 9 that all state governments had agreed at the National Water Council meeting that the state water tariffs be reviewed and a new mechanism for setting water tariffs would be created to regulate the hike in tariffs by operators. – Bernama
