Malaysia: No water rationing in Negri for now

The Star 10 Nov 16;

SEREMBAN: It’s good news for consumers in Negri Sembilan for now as the authorities have decided against imposing water rationing that was to start next week.

Although the dam and river levels were still low, Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan said heavy rains, induced by cloud-seeding activities since last Thursday, brought some relief.

“We have also stopped releasing 100 million litres of water daily from the Talang dam into Ulu Sungai Muar as heavy rains have replenished supply in the river,” he said.

Mohamad said water levels in several other rivers, such as Sungai Kenaboi and Sungai Teriang, had also gone up.

Prolonged dry weather in places such as in Jempol, Jelebu and Kuala Pilah led to a sharp decline in the water levels at major rivers and dams last month.
