Burst pipe causes water disruption in Miri


KUCHING: Water supply to the Subis and Beluru districts was disrupted on Saturday evening due to a broken pipe.

The water supply was disrupted at Bukit Song, Bekenu, Bukit Peninjau, Beluru Fasa 2 up to the Bekenu area.

The Rural Water Supply Department (JBALB) said that the pipe was repaired quickly.

“The repair was completed around 2am and supply was restored in stages.

Meanwhile, the department on Sunday (August 8) detected two more broken pipes near the Marudi junction.

“The pipeline belonging to the department was frequently broken and leaking due to damages caused in the process of building the Pan Borneo Highway.

“The department will deliver water supply to the affected areas to ensure that users can perform their daily activities until the repair work is completed by the Pan Borneo Highway contractor,” it added.

JBALB Sarawak said it would work together with the Pan Borneo Highway contractor to address the issue.

Users will be informed through the department’s social media platform.
