SERDANG: Water woes have not ended yet in Johor despite the water levels at several dams in the country showing improvement over the past week due to the heavy rains.

National Water Services Commission (SPAN) CEO Datuk Mohd Ridhuan Ismail said the Bukit Merah dam in Perak especially, has shown significant improvement.

He said the water level was at 8.10m or 74.8% capacity.

According to Mohd Ridhuan, Johor still faces water rationing.

"The levels at the water treatment plants in Johor are increasing but still below critical levels.

“We will have to continue with water rationing in Mersing and Kota Tinggi until June 15," he told reporters after flagging off some 1,500 participants for the Thirsty Runner 2016 at the Malaysia Agro Exposition Park Serdang (MAEPS) here Sunday morning.
