Malaysia Malacca CM: Water rationing only if dam levels unsatisfactory

The Star 22 Oct 16;

MALACCA: The Malacca state government will implement scheduled water rationing in two weeks if the water levels at the state's three dams remain unsatisfactory.

Chief Minister Datuk Seri Idris Haron said even though the state was experiencing rainfall, the water level at Durian Tunggal, Jus and Asahan dams was still alarming.

"There has been some rain but not at the dam areas, so we have to take precautions and be prepared for any possibility of water rationing.

"Therefore, I urge all parties to impose prudent use of water and to make necessary preparations to store water," he said at a press conference after launching the state-level National Environment Day here, Saturday.

Malacca Water Monitoring Body statistics show the level of Durian Tunggal Dam as being at 39.1%, Jus Dam at 45.5% and Asahan Dam at 61.3%. – Bernama
