KUCHING: The cleaning of ‘Sedimentation Basin 1’ and maintenance of Trusan Plant 20MLD Lawas will commence at 9am today (August 15) and last until 5pm on Tuesday (August 18), informed the Sarawak Rural Water Supply Department (JBALB).

They said that for this purpose, the release of water will be done at half-capacity, causing some areas to experience low water pressure.
