KUCHING: A raw water project costing RM145 million for Sri Aman division is currently in the tender process, said Utilities Minister Datuk Seri Dr Stephen Rundi Utom.

He said the project was necessary in order to meet the needs of Bayai Water Treatment Plant.

“The facility will transfer water from Batang Lupar because the one located in Engkilili is not sufficient to meet the needs for treated water in Bayai.

“We need bigger sources of water,” he told reporters when asked on actions that had been taken to address water shortages during dry weather in Bayai.

He said this during his official visit at the Batu Kitang Water Treatment Plant in Padawan today.

Earlier, Dr Rundi visited water treatment plants at Lower Matang Booster Station, Package 1 Matang Mid-level and Upper Matang Reservoir Package 2 Pipe Laying Works near Kuching-Matang Polytechnic.
