Water Disruption In Belait District
Kuala Belait - Water supply to several areas in the Belait District has been disrupted since yesterday afternoon.
The disruption, which started at 5.30pm, was caused by a damaged electric circuit board at the Seria Water Treatment Plant. For the time being, the ongoing repair works on the problem at hand may persist. During this period, water services through water tankers and distribution of blue water storage tanks will be available to the public until normal water supply is resumed.
The public is advised to use water wisely and to also store water for daily consumption as repair works may take a long time.
The respective department is also taking measure to place the blue tanks at several strategic places, namely The Sungai Liang Mosque, JKR Lumut Branch, JKR Seria Branch, JKR Jalan Nakhoda Ragam Branch, and the JKR Belait District headquarters in Kuala Belait.
The public may call the hotline 140 if the need for water tank service arises. However, water supply is limited. Water supply shall resume as soon as repair works are completed, said the Water Services Department.-- Courtesy of Borneo Bulletin
