Ranhill SAJ assures uninterrupted water supply for Aidiladha festivities

JOHOR BARU: All efforts have been made by water services operator Ranhill SAJ to ensure uninterrupted water supply throughout the Hari Raya Aidiladha period.

Its chief executive officer Anuar Abdul Ghani said the necessary preparations, including a workshop held last month, have been carried out to prevent any disruptions during the festive celebration.

"We want to ensure no repeats of the Hari Raya Aidilfitri incident where about 1,000 account holders in Kulai experienced water cuts.

"The incident happened because of technical faults and the shrinking of the Sembrong Dam in Kluang, of which the issues have been addressed.

"I am confident it will not happen again this festive season," he said after attending the company’s anti-graft pledging ceremony here on Thursday (June 13).

Anuar added that during last month’s workshop, they came up with contingency plans to handle issues such as high water usage during festive celebrations, not just the upcoming Hari Raya Aidiladha but also Deepavali and Chinese New Year.

He added that it has become a culture for Malaysians to balik kampung during all festive seasons, necessitating the company to be ready to handle the surge in water usage.

On April 11, some 1,000 households in Kulai, including Kampung Murni Jaya, Kampung Sri Muar and Felda Bukit Permai, reportedly had to spend their Aidilfitri without water.

The residents had to depend on static water tanks for supply while waiting for the situation to gradually improve in the following days.
