Sabah Water Department investigates murky, smelly water issue


KOTA KINABALU: Sabah Water Department is investigating the cause of smelly and murky water following public reports from several locations.

The department's technical team was mobilised on Thursday (June 20) to investigate and inspect the water treatment plant, main pipelines, storage tanks, reticulation pipes, and user metres along the northern part of the city.

Those affected include the Likas Women and Children Hospital, users in the Kingfisher area, Sulaman Central, and Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS).

"Investigation revealed that the water output from the Telibong 2 Water Treatment Plant (WTP) is still at a normal level and complies with the established water quality standards," said the department in a Facebook post on Thursday night.

The department said they are “flushing” the pipelines in the affected areas.

"Investigations and inspections are still being carried out to detect the real cause (of the issue) while also preventing this murky water incident from happening again in the future,” it said in the statement.
