KUANTAN – The El Nino phenomenon is affecting water supply at three water treatment plants in Temerloh and Lipis with 6,509 subscribers in the two districts complaining of low water pressure since a week ago.
Pengurusan Air Pahang Berhad (PAIP) public relations and corporate communications officer Nurul Farhana Abdul Hamid said the problem in Temerloh involved the treatment plant in Lubuk Kawah.
For the Lipis district, it involves the Jelai and Batu 9 treatment plants, she said when contacted by Bernama here today.
However, she said, PAOP had taken necessary measures, including sending its water tankers, to provide water supply to residents in the affected areas.
Meanwhile, a resident of Kampung Tanjung Lipis, Siti Rohani Yusof, 32, said the low water pressure since the past week had forced her family to use water from a nearby river.
“The water just trickles from the tap, and last Saturday, when my relatives came, I had to take them to the river to bathe,” she said. – BERNAMA
