Malaysia: Water disruptions ongoing in JB, Kulai and Kota Tinggi

The Star 8 Oct 16;

JOHOR BARU: Several residential areas here as well as Kulai and Kota Tinggi have been experiencing disruptions because of low levels at the Bukit Batu, Semangar and Sultan Ismail water treatment plants.

SAJ Holdings Sdn Bhd (SAJ) corporate communications head Jamaluddin Jamil said that the areas affected include Taman Kempas Utama, Jalan Kempas Lama-Seelong, Jalan Seelong-Senai, Jalan Kempas Lama-Skudai and Taman Impian Jaya Seelong.

He added Taman Anggerik, Taman Bukit Kempas Fasa 4/5, Kampung Pemuda Jaya Seelong, Kampung Sinaran Baru, Sekolah Hidayan Jalan Seelong, Pekan Bukit Batu, Jalan Kulai-Air Hitam, Kampung Air Manis Kulai and Kampung Air Bemban were also experiencing disruptions.

Also affected are those staying in Taman Kulai Utama, Jalan Layang-Layang Bukit Batu and Felda Bukit Batu.

The disruption was due to a shortage of water from Sungai Ulu Pontian Besar, Sungai Johor and Sungai Skudai.

Jamaluddin said the Sultan Ismail water treatment plant was also affected by the high level of ammonia and fluoride coming from Sungai Skudai.

“The dry weather has also disrupted supply,” said Jamaluddin, adding that water will be distributed to residents upon request especially to schools, dialysis centres, houses of worship, hospitals, school hostels or during events like funerals.

Residents are advised to store enough water and call SAJ Info Centre at 1800 88 7474 or SMS 019-772 7474 or email for information.
