Penang’s water conundrum


MY LAST water bill was RM7.48, but that is not the monthly amount. Penang homes get billed for water once every two months.

A senior management member of Penang Water Supply Corporation (PBAPP) told me years ago that sending the meter man out to tally the measly sum monthly was too expensive, so the meter man visits each home once every two months.

Limited time offer:
Just RM5 per month.
